A forum in Dayton tonight will focus on gun violence in the city. It's the first of four events hosted by the Community Initiative to Reduce Gun Violence (CIRVG). The group's work has already made a positive impact.
Gun violence has actually declined in the last decade. Since the CIRGV program began in 2008, group-related gun violence dropped 86% in its first four years.

Today on ReInvention Stories, we visit Trotwood, west of Dayton, which has undergone dramatic change in recent years with the closure of the Salem Mall.
There’s a home for teenage mothers in Trotwood, part of a non-profit called The Mustard Seed Foundation. It’s a place where mothers can live with their babies as they try and build a stable future. It was founded by a former teen mom Shondale Atkinson, whose own reinvention is where the story of the Mustard Seed Foundation begins.
The city of Dayton has become the latest front in the legal assault on traffic cameras in Ohio.

Thanks, in part, to an improbable run in this year's NCAA men's basketball tournament, the University of Dayton has given a contract extension to head basketball coach Archie Miller. Miller's deal was announced Monday afternoon and has him coaching at UD through the 2018-19 season.
Miller has been the head coach of the Flyers since 2011 and has guided the team this year to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 30 years.
