Fernandez allocates money to address gun violence


As the weather has gotten warmer, bodies have continued to drop throughout the city. In fact, on June 11, there was a shooting in every borough.

In an effort to curb the gun violence, Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez allocated $45,000 on June 14 to the Stand Up to Violence (SUV) Program. SUV is Jacobi Medical Center’s Violence Interruption Program funded by the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services.
