“No Smoke Sundays” is a free hangout for middle and high school youth here in Chattanooga.

The event - Sundays this month from 6 PM to 8 PM in Miller Park - was created after the recent shootings in the city to provide fun activities and inspirational conversations for youth as a safe and alternative gathering during a peak time for gun violence.

The Lighthouse Collective is hosting “No Smoke Sundays,” in partnership with the City of Chattanooga and Cempa Community Care.

LaDarius Price is community outreach manager at Cempa - and a cofounder of The Lighthouse Collective.
