Damion Cooper uses his startling life’s story of being shot an inch above the heart at point blank range by one of two gunmen to teach lessons of forgiveness, self-control, discipline and redemption via mentorship. While mentoring a young man in prison during his years in Seminary, he discovered that his mentee was the assailant who shot him years earlier. This inspired him to create Project Pneuma; a holistic program focused on forgiveness and curbing impulse actions in young African American males by teaching them yoga, mindfulness, breathing techniques and martial arts. Project Pneuma also partners with the Baltimore City Police Department so that the young men and new officers can build bonds of trust, respect and cultural competencies.

Damion currently serves as the Director of Neighborhood Relations for the City Council President. He is charged with building relationships and bridging the gap with City Government, Communities, Faith-Based Institutions, City Schools and Colleges, bringing forth new initiatives and potential legislation that would better the communities in Baltimore. Damion is a certified Gang Awareness and Intervention Trainer through the Department of Juvenile Justice and trains competitively with the Warlord’s Academy of Martial Arts.
