Abstract
In Montreal, the Leave Out Violence (LOVE) program uses professional journalists, photographers, and LOVE staff to equip young people with tools to develop and express their voices. Youth who have experienced violence, as perpetrators, victims, or witnesses, engage in photojournalism projects, leadership training, and community outreach.
