“‘It takes a neighborhood’ to take a stand against gun violence,” said Lance Feurtado, co-founder of King of Kings Foundation.  King of Kings is a Cure Violence partner in New York City.

ABC News Live spent the day with Mr. Feurtado and the violence interrupters seeking to make a difference in their community as they find themselves at the center of America’s gun violence epidemic.

President Biden Visits Cure Violence Partner

Because of his commitment to reducing violence, President Biden visited Cure Violence partner Community Capacity Development (CCD).  CCD is a longtime partner of CVG in New York City.

Biden on Cure Violence

The president said, “The program I’m going to see this afternoon. They send people to the community to interrupt violence, to mediate conflicts, to de-escalate. They succeeded in preventing a single shooting from occurring in this largest public housing development last year.  No shooting for a full year because they engaged directly with the community.”

Without a doubt, this is the most high-profile endorsement of the Cure Violence approach to date!
