Virtual town hall with Queens congresswoman addresses creative approaches to community safety


Queens/Bronx Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bronx Rep. Jamaal Bowman hosted a virtual town hall for constituents last week to address public safety approaches in their districts.

Different safety modules, such as the Stand Up to Violence (SUV), were discussed as ways to curb violence besides traditional ways like adding to the police budget. Instead, the representatives are coming up with solutions that address the root causes.
