CDN Movement we’d like to introduce to you “STOP THE VIOLENCE – SPREAD THE LOVE” a brand geared towards being apart of the solution to stopping violence. Through events, presentations and clothing brand, it aims to stop violence by spreading the message that Violence is the Problem not the solution and Together WE CAN stop it.
Quentrel Provo also known as D’@vion is a Singer, Songwriter, Activist, Inspirational Speaker and founder of Stop the Violence from Preston (North/East), Nova Scotia. He’s also a graduate of Paralegal Studies from Maritime Business College. It was August 11th, 2012 that his life would change after the death of his cousin Kaylin Diggs who was killed in Halifax Bar district. The next few days after such a tragedy, he thought of a way to channel his hurt and anger into something positive by starting the Stop the Violence movement. It was weeks after the death of his cousin that he did the 1st Annual Stop the Violence Day march and has since held an Annual march every year since the tragedy. Through Stop the Violence he’s also does presentations throughout the province to on violence awareness as he tries to decrease violence through spreading the message to stand against it.
