The Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council continues to fight crime with Geraldo and FOX NEWS.  The organization worked for weeks with the Network on this story to highlight the important work of Cure Violence, Harlem Mothers SAVE, and their Hip-Hop Against Gun & Gang Violence Project.  The project is now in day 95 of a 109-day campaign to curb gun violence by working with community groups and the NYPD to promote peace and prosperity.  A New York/Chicago Gang Summit is in the works with FOX because the violence in the Windy City is out of control–so stay tuned.

In addition, we also wanted to address Stop, Question and Frisk, a much debated policy that we are working directly with NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly on to tweak through our “Rap 2 Bridge the Gap” initiative.  The focus of the project is to tour public schools and public housing to help build stronger relations between NYPD, students and young adults who are most affected by crime fighting policy.

“Working with Charles and Randy in Brooklyn and Harlem on this story was a great experience and I’m looking forward to many more because we have to all work as a team to reduce gun violence and improve public safety,” ended Craig Rivera, Senior Producer/Correspondent, Geraldo At Large.

“I had a lot of fun working with the Fishers on this project because at the end of the day we all want to put an end to the murders that are happening not just in NYC, but around the country.  I’m looking forward to the Gang Summit in Chicago so lets make it happen,” ended Greg Hart, Producer, Geraldo At Large.
