Not Another One! is a youth-led discussion that opens communication and identifies commonality, greater understanding, and ways to cooperate and collaborate between city police and teenage youth as both work to lower the high rates of gun violence in St. Louis, Missouri. The discussion details citizen rights, police policies and procedures, trauma caused by gun violence, and possible solutions in a frank, honest, and respectful discussion.

The discussion was transcribed and a book and is now available with foreword by Jason Q. Purnell, Ph.D., M.P.H., Assistant Professor at Washington University in St. Louis.

Not Another One! is dedicated to those lost and impacted by gun violence.

The Collective commissioned St. Louis playwright and Story Stitchers artist in residence Lauron Thompson to write and direct the Saint Louis Story Stitchers first play, Not Another One! A Play 4 Peace. The play features original hip hop music by Story Stitchers artist in residence K.P. Dennis. The play is based on this youth-led discussion with police and civic leaders on gun violence.
