EMERGENCY SUMMIT ON REDUCING GUN VIOLENCE IN NEW YORK’S URBAN COMMUNITIES

UPDATED 8/4/13 11:45

Long time anti-gun Assemblyman Karim Camara is holding an event, “Emergency Summit …”  at John Jay College of Criminal Justice on Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2013 from 9AM to 1 PM.  The event is sponsored by Camara &  Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.  I am planning to go.  It should be fun.  I am driving so if anyone wants to go, send me an email.

UPDATES:  I will be adding links to some of the speakers:

Professor David Kennedy; Op-Ed: Another kind of gun control; instead of doomed legislation, focus police and social services on ‘hot’ groups and places. MY SUMMARY:  Why fight over politics and new gun control laws that normally don’t work.  Instead, focus on the people and groups who are doing most of the shooting and where, (or hot spots,) all of the crime is going on.

Michael Skolnik; Political Director to Russell Simmons and Co-President of globalgrind.com.  Just totally anti-gun.

Shanduke McPhatter;  Executive Director/ Founder at Gangstas Making Astronomical Community Changes Inc.  Ex-blood who decided he did not like to be in prison and wants to turn the youth around.  (Skip the first 1:30)

Pastor Gilford Monrose, Lead Pastor at Mt.Zion Church of God 7th Day and President at 67th Precinct Clergy Council, Inc.
Allen James; Program Manager, Save Our Streets Crown Heights;
Jackie-Rowe Adams; Co-Founder of Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E. (Stop Another Violent End);  Why guns in school will make it worse, Fox News, 4/2/13  Just totally anti-all guns.  Jackie Rowe-Adams says armed guards will bring more tragedy, will not make schools safer and will distract from school work.  She was the one who joined the NRA so she could confront Wayne LaPierre at an annual meeting.  She lost 2 children to shootings.

Jim St. Germain; Youth Activist; Jim St. Germain, a former student who grew up in Crown Heights and was incarcerated at the age of 14, said programs like Passages can make a huge difference for teens running out of time to turn their lives around. “Looking back at it now, it was actually the best thing in my life,” said St. Germain, who is now 23 and preparing to enter law school after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in political science from John Jay College.
