SAFE SUMMER ’23 helps build the culture of Peace, love, respect and safety for our community.

Historically during Summer season the rate of gun violence begins to rise as youth, adults, families and community begin to engage in outdoor and recreational activities. Safe summer 2023 was developed to address gun violence before it happens. We need to be proactive to ensure the safest summer possible.

How Can you get involved?


Although gun violence has decreased to historically low levels in recent years, it remains a pervasive issue in small pockets of neighborhoods around New York City.

The Communities that CCD serve are empowered to play a vital role in addressing and determining Public Safety.


Community capacity Development becomes “Core-5” member of the White House Community violence intervention collaborative (CVIC). This is an initiative launched by the Biden-Harris Administration that convenes Mayors, grassroot community violence intervention (CVI) organizations, national funders and federal agencies to strengthen and enhance the capacity of community – based violence intervention organizations to serve as a complimentary strategy to policing in reducing violence and create safe communities.

Community Capacity Development with CVIC will engage 64 grassroots CVI organizations, across 16 jurisdictions to execute a comprehensive national training and technical assistance and support programs.
