Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective

Unintentional Shootings PSA Campaign

The SAFE! Team Campaign has been supported in part with funds from the

St. Louis Violence Prevention Commission.

Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective produced a PSA campaign to support public health and safety education to reduce unintentional shootings involving children and youth in St. Louis. According to 5 On Your Side data, 140 children under the age of 17 were victims of gun violence in 2022 in the St. Louis area of Missouri and Illinois. Eighteen of them died.

Story Stitchers took the raw content collected from community, filtered it through experts in the field of public health messaging, and worked with professionals to refine the concepts and generate final videos and static photographic images conveying the messaging. The art works are ready for dissemination for public viewing using social media and other media channels including bus shelter posters and bus kings.

Let’s take action together and keep our kids SAFE!
