Clemmie Greenlee is no stranger to the dangers of gang violence, street life and jail. From the time she was 12 until her early 40s, Clemmie was consumed by a world of gangs, violence, drugs and prostitution. This same world continues to exist today for too many of Nashville’s young people and Clemmie Greenlee is doing something about it. In 2003, the same year she lost her only son to gang violence, Clemmie completed a recovery program and began to work as an advocate for those who were struggling with life in the streets. Now a tireless advocate and a source of inspiration and leadership in the community, Clemmie Greenlee is a Soros Fellow who runs a program called Galaxy Stars, a Nashville based organization dedicated to intervening in the lives of young people and serving those in need. Please join us to hear their story.
