Quentrel Provo is the founder of Stop the Violence, an award-winning activist, and recently named one of the Most Influential People of African Descent Under 40 by the United Nations. The aim of his work is to stand against violence and bullying by spreading a positive message.
Quentrel's mission began in 2012 when he lost his best friend and cousin, Kaylin Diggs, to a senseless act of violence. Since that day, he has made it his mission to educate and mentor others to stop violence and instead spread more love in the world. He shares how a 300-person memorial march in 2012 has turned into a movement empowering families and youth.
Thanks to Quentrel's work, June 10th is now officially recognized as Stop the Violence Day in Nova Scotia.
