Council Member Laurie Cumbo joined Mayor Bill de Blasio and Council colleagues to celebrate the creation of the NYC Mayor’s Office to Prevent Gun Violence. The new Office, which would be housed within the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, was an initiative spearheaded by Cumbo for nearly two years to coordinate efforts to reduce gun violence with the mayoral administration; engage community members, elected officials and other stakeholders to develop additional strategies; and review budget requests of all agencies for anti-gun violence programs.
