Community Coordinator, Office to Prevent Gun Violence

The New York City Office to Prevent Gun Violence (OPGV), housed within the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, is focused on synchronizing the city’s anti-gun violence initiatives while amplifying community based intervention/prevention services and employing technological solutions to end gun violence. Our mission is to create safe, empowered and interconnected communities utilizing a multitude of public safety strategies. This is accomplished by coordinating a series of violence intervention and supportive networks that are simultaneously operating across 21 communities across the 5 boroughs in neighborhoods that account for upwards of 50% of NYC’s shooting incidents. Collectively, this initiative is known as the Crisis Management System (CMS) and was launched by Mayor Bill de Blasio in 2014 as part of the city’s long-term plan to reduce violent crime in our neighborhoods. These initiatives respond to the
individual, familial and community-based needs in historically disinvested, marginalized, and underserved communities of color that experience gun violence. Currently, over 50 community-based organizations are a part of this network, which focuses on violence prevention services utilizing the Cure Violence Model as its core and additional social service supports as its complements.
