TAYSHANA CHICKEN MURPHY FOUNDATION
We are asking for funds which can be utilized toward our Gun Violence Prevention measures.

Follow our story as we watch Taylonn Murphy Sr travel New York City and nationwide to not only honor the memory of his beloved daughter, but to help bring an end to senseless gun violence.


All the money generated through our campaign, will be used to provide for our S.I.M.B.A. and Both Sides of the Gun programs, Family Response Team, Ball N Peace, Kids Behind The Camera, and other initiatives that will focus on gun violence prevention in the tri-state area.

OUR MISSION IS TO CREATE AND SUPPORT PROGRAMS THAT CULTIVATE AND NURTURE THE MINDS OF AT-RISK YOUTH, WHILE TEACHING THEM THE SKILLS TO PROMOTE PEACE THROUGHOUT SOCIETY.


S.I.M.B.A. – STRONG INTELLIGENT MINDS BUILDING ALLIANCES
Mission of S.I.M.B.A.

S.I.M.B.A. is a youth empowerment skills/discipline employment program. The objective of this program, is to provide the youth with the necessary life skills for gainful employment and/or starting their own small business. S.I.M.B.A. is also an alternative to youth violence. S.I.M.B.A. deals with our youths’ similarities, instead of exploiting their differences. S.I.M.B.A. teaches our youth teamwork, discipline, and self worth. S.I.M.B.A. also teaches basic economics and shows our youth how to become entrepreneurs. My belief is that all young people have an inner greatness that needs to be groomed, nurtured and cultivated. S.I.M.B.A. is one of the answers.

Both Sides Of The Gun: An In Depth Look Into Gun Violence  

The objective of this seminar, is to be a deterrent to gun violence by examining the effects gun violence has on both sides of the spectrum and community.   The seminar will be an hour long in-depth look into the feelings and viewpoints of the victim’s family (i.e. the father) and the perpetrator’s family (i.e. the mother) using the case of Tayshana “Chicken” Murphy. Tayshana “Chicken” Murphy was a nationally ranked rising female basketball star that was gunned down in her building, a NYC Harlem Housing Development. Seven categories are highlighted during the seminar:

1. Cause.  Conflict between two rival housing developments, resulting in the death of one person and the incarceration of another person.

2. Initial Shock.  Feelings and reactions when first learned of murder.

3. Funeral/Arrest.  Both parties’ feelings during this time.

4. Bereavement.  Coping after the murder.

5. Aftermath.  Effects murder and media had on community and family.

6. Conflict/Turmoil.  Physical and psychological impact murder had on family and community.

7. Solutions.  Thoughts on healing and preventing further victims of violence.


The seminar Both Sides Of The Gun, examines the pain of two families from opposite sides of the gun, which shall serve as a powerful deterrent to gun violence. We pray that this forum changes the hearts and minds of our youth.

Family Response Team

 We are here as a support system and network for the families of those who lost a loved one to gun violence.
