Re: Gang Free Zone initiative
We would like to take this momentous opportunity to express our profound gratitude to you all for your commitment to our New York ‘Gang Free Zone’ initiative.
Gang violence, according to NYPD, has consistently been the single largest contributor to overall devastating crime rates. While too many folks look at these (mostly) young perpetrators with disgust and avoidance, we, on the other hand, see them as naïve victims failed by societal protective pillars. Another word, we see them as victims as much as we abhor their activities.
Although the Big Apple remains the safest big city in the nation, gang violence has nonetheless continues to rob too many families of their loved ones, devastate our communities, and deprived us of any sustainable socioeconomic progress in our affected neighborhoods.
So since gang violence is the single most urgent public safety challenge faced by New Yorkers, especially those in low income neighborhoods, Community Public Safety Partnership, through its weekly Peacemakers Dinners, has been very effective in countering gang recruitments. “It takes a village to protect our neighborhoods.”
In conclusion, we’re deeply indebted to our New York City Councilmember, Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr., State Senator Luis Sepulveda and State Assembly Victor Pichardo for their willingness to sponsor this historic and life-saving ‘Gang Free Zone’ legislature in New York. We also thank the Yemeni business owners for their generous donation. It is our position that restriction of gang activities in certain venues must be vigorously enforced and violators severely punished.
Please contact Rev. Diaz, Mr. Sepulveda and Mr. Pichardo and thank them for their leadership on this noble piece of legislature. God bless you all! #gangfreezone #nycpc #revdiazsr #luissepulveda #victorpichardo #nyc #nys #nypd #justiceforjunior #iamjimenez #cpsp
