David's Shoes

Helping Children and Teens Honor Life

David's Shoes is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing teen violence and honor those we've lost, through youth empowerment, education, and community engagement.






David Lane II

David’s Shoes is a nonprofit organization born out of the death of David Lane II. At the age of 18, David was killed by a young man who was only 17 years of age. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to encouraging teens and children to honor life. We visit schools, churches and any other youth related audiences sharing the story of David’s untimely death and encouraging them to honor their lives. The culmination of each presentation involves students taking the Honor Life Pledge.


Reducing violence among our youth begins by providing a vehicle for them to discover their brilliance, beauty and self-worth. When they recognize their self-worth, they will be able to recognize the value of all life. This is the method we chose to use to reduce violence in our communities.
