A project of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, SNUG Violence Prevention (GUNS spelled backwards) is one of the 10 statewide programs aimed at reducing and preventing shootings and violence. The program engages residents, private industry, and community-based organizations.
SNUG staff will help identify and diffuse community “hot spots,” with a focus on identifying youth who are gang members or who are at-risk for joining gangs, providing the mentorship and leadership necessary to break the cycle of violence.
SNUG staff and participants were given the opportunity to attend the
Knicks Pre-Game Warm Up session and game. During the session,
Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose, both strong supporter of SNUG/Cure Violence,
came over to speak to the group.
