Programming: AR – Rapper

Arthur Renowitzky is the executive director and founder
of Life Goes On Foundation (LGO) a nonpolitical/nonprofit organization working in the Bay
Area to help bring an end to gun violence amongst youth. Arthur founded LGO in 2007
after he was shot point blank in the chest outside of a San Francisco night club by an
unknown assailant, leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. The shooter took $20
dollars from Arthur and a $15 tin chain. The shooter was never found. Arthur forgives his
shooter and wishes for no revenge.
After the shooting, Arthur was rushed to the hospital and believes the first responders are
the reason he is alive today.   After a 23-day battle in a medically induced coma, Arthur
woke on Christmas Eve-day to learn he would never walk again. That news drove Arthur’s
mind in a direction he never imagined – not, my life is over, but “I can’t let this happen to
another kid like me”
Establishing his “line in the sand” against gun violence, Arthur knew the best route was
to found his non-profit, LGO, and aggressively hit the streets spreading his message of
peace and the real reality of gun violence, through special events and public speaking.
