EGAR is now supporting Mothers Against Violence (M.A.V).  MAV was formed in 1999, this was as a direct result of the Manchester community being affected by four gun shootings in one week, which resulted in two fatalities. A meeting was held and mothers from across the South Manchester area met to discuss how they as a community could stop these senseless killings and deter their children from the illusion of gang culture and gun crime.

MAV has worked tirelessly and fiercely to raise awareness and bring together communities and agencies in an attempt to address this issue.

MAV has organised a Million Mothers March which will take place on Sunday 23rd August 2009 from 2-5.30pm at Albert Square, Manchester.
