Campaign reaches out directly to communities to combat violence, especially illegal guns, in Bronx neighborhoods

On Saturday, September 22, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., together with members of the Bronx Clergy Task Force and local community leaders hosted the annual “Peace in Our Streets” initiative. This program brings Borough President Diaz, religious leaders, law enforcement officials and other concerned citizens into direct contact with Bronx residents to discuss growing concerns about violence in their neighborhoods, especially the threat of illegal guns.

The initiative kicked off at the Forest Houses Community Center on Tinton Avenue in Morrisania.
