JERSEY CITY -- In reaction to the recent influx of crime in Jersey City, Sen. Sandra Bolden Cunningham announced on Friday a working forum to discuss measures to keep the youth safe from gun violence. Federal, state, local, and county elected officials, as well as specific non-profit community organizations, governing bodies and religious leaders have been invited to attend.

“While many families in New Jersey are out enjoying the warm weather, our community has been plagued by crime, including escalating rates of gun violence. The goal of this forum is to begin creating a strategy to control gun violence in our neighborhoods, “said Senator Cunningham. “We can no longer sit back as violence terrorizes our streets, and these discussions will play a vital role in curbing this dangerous trend.”

The meeting will be held Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at the Mary McCloud Bethune Center, 140 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr., Jersey City, NJ 07305.
