TARGET EDUCATION
CRUSH VIOLENCE

Christopher 2X Game Changers is a nonprofit organization that promotes early childhood education, parental involvement, mentoring, and community involvement to positively transform the lives of children and young people, end violence long term, and make communities safer in the Louisville area.

It’s hard for many of us to imagine

...waking up in the night to the sound of gun fire. It’s hard for us to imagine the emotional toll and trauma on a child who is expected to get up and attend school the following morning. That’s a sad reality for many children in our community.

Since 2018, Christopher 2X Game Changers has worked tirelessly to change that reality. We believe every child should grow up feeling safe and confident.

Violence impacts a child’s learning and our city as a whole, but our community can be a safer place where all children can thrive and reach their full potential. With your support, we can change the lives of children in the Louisville Metropolitan area and make a difference in the next generation of young people. Your donation helps provide these vulnerable children with the resources needed to get them on a path to success in the classroom and in life.

Founded by Christopher 2X, Game Changers partners with local organizations, law enforcement agencies, schools, and community leaders to promote early childhood education and parental involvement, support victims of gun violence, advocate for peace and justice, and bring hope and healing to the children and young people in our community.

Promote Early Childhood Education

Children must be reached at a very early age, even before kindergarten, to reduce the impact of gun violence. Your donations help us put children on a path to success in the classroom through parental involvement, participation in our mentoring programs, engagement in community service projects, and partnerships with schools, civic groups, and child care centers.

Engage Others

We build awareness of the enormous challenges faced by children exposed to gun violence. We have involved over 100 children in community service and mentoring programs through our partnerships with organizations such as The University of Louisville Hospital Trauma Team, the Rotary Club of Louisville, the Chestnut Street YMCA Child Development Center, representatives of law enforcement, the judiciary, youth athletic associations, and community leaders.

Support Victims

Your donations help us provide guidance and be a voice for victims of gun violence. Christopher 2X is often the first person a family or the media contacts when a gun violence incident happens. In just one year, our donors and partners allowed us to help more than 50 traumatized families with funeral arrangements, counseling for the children, and donation drives for financial needs.
