Bronx Dignitaries to Present at Conference on Youth Violence

BRONX, NY (January, 14, 2009) – Algernon Quattlebaum, Community Organizer and the NAACP Co-op City Branch will sponsor a conference themed “Keep Us Safe”, on Friday, January 30, 2009, 7:30 p.m. at 135 Einstein Loop Room 45. The event, which expects upwards of 200 attendees, will focus on community-based solutions to youth violence, including gang activity. Dr. Divine Pryor, Deputy Executive Director of the NuLeadership on Urban Solutions, will deliver the keynote address. Leaders from the NAACP Co-op City Branch, the Harriet Tubman Independent Democratic Club and the Coalition of African-American Churches & Community Organization will also participate.

“This forum is timely,” said Quattlebaum. “In light of recent stabbings of two teens in Co-op City, it is imperative that we raise awareness about this issue of increasing importance, and explore ways to encourage youth to engage in positive, life-affirming activities.”
