The Greater Pittsburgh Coalition Against Violence, in conjunction with the Black Political Empowerment Project and the National Urban League, has released a manual outlining 748 tactics to help curb the prevalence of violence on our urban streets, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette – read the full article here.

The manual, released Friday, was commissioned by the Black Political Empowerment Project after a report identified Pennsylvania as having one of the highest homicides rates among African-Americans in the United States.

Some of the topics in the manual include “preventing bullying, domestic violence, gun crimes and gangs and other social ills while also cultivating education, health, civic engagement, financial literacy, employment and responsible family relationships.”
