"The Louisville Zoo’s mission has always been “to better the bond between people and our planet. It’s a vision that requires constant improvement, and we have been steadfast in efforts to continually cultivate more compassion for both
wildlife and the humans who share this beautiful world."
"But when local activist Christopher 2X, leader of anti-violence nonprofit 2X Game Changers, thinks of "community" in Louisville, it's even bigger. His program, focused on healing children, has gotten attention from the FBI, and is becoming an example of how to help children across the country."

A newly recruited star of the University of Louisville men’s basketball program is giving back to the community as a youth ambassador.
Hercy Miller, a UofL basketball walk-on who joined the team earlier in June, is joining non-violence advocate 2X’s Game Changers organization.
For “outstanding service to the local community and enduring contributions to the advancement of justice,” Christopher 2X is to be honored with the FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award - the FBI’s highest civilian honor – at a ceremony later this year in Louisville. The award was noted at an FBI leadership training this week in Washington DC where Chris, UofL surgeons Dr. Chris Jones and Dr. Keith Miller, UofL medical student Karen Udoh, and the Louisville Zoo’s Education Curator Kim Allgeier, discussed Louisville’s Future Healers programs that are helping kids heal, learn and thrive.
"The goal of Future Healers is simple," said Christopher 2X. "To encourage these kids to be great humanitarian advocates as it relates to understanding that you have to respect the whole idea of the existence of another human being in a healthy and proper way."
Gun violence continues surging in Louisville, with 16 homicides and 60 non-fatal shootings reported in Louisville Metro in March. So far this year, 47 homicides and 159 non-fatal shootings have occurred, according to information provided by LMPD’s homicide unit to 2X Game Changers.
2X Game Changers and The Kidz Club PPEC (Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care) are teaming up to help children with medical conditions, who suffer emotionally because of exposure to violence, find a path to a safe and nurturing future.”
I’m honored to have such dedicated, successful people join our team, and look forward to working with them to further our mission of building a movement for social justice through education and non-violence,” said 2X, who has fought for peace and justice for two decades and founded the 2X Game Changers organization in 2018.
