WHO: Council Member Donovan Richards (D-Far Rockaway); NYPD Community Affairs Unit; Local leaders

  Council Member Richards will be announcing the next part of his effort to eliminate gun violence in Far Rockaway. Last year, he ensured that a group of programs received funding through Mayor de Blasio’s anti-gun violence initiative to create a well-rounded approach to combating gun violence in the Rockaways. Through Safe Space’s cure violence and mental health programs, Rockaway Development Revitalization Corporation’s Justice Plus program, ENACT’s school conflict mediation at PS/MS 183 and PS/MS 42 and the violence interrupters program, these initiatives aim to make a difference by decreasing crime on the ground floor of the community.
