During 2007, CHUC:
At our final meeting before the 2007 summer break, the Coalition decided its goal would be to prevent and reduce violence in Crown Heights. Members discussed the unique role that the CHUC could play to take advantage of the fact that its members have ties to both community residents (including youth) and to established community organizations and institutions. The CHUC also reviewed the responses of community members, collected through surveys, to understand what actions could be taken to prevent and reduce violence. Based on these responses, CHUC considered focusing on the following two areas:
Our first step in this direction was to sponsor a community wide letter writing campaign: Crown Heights Writes to bring attention to the need for more police presence in Crown Heights. On December 28th 2007, 38 freshly graduated recruits were assigned to the 77th Precinct and an impact zone was established from Kingston to Franklin between Eastern Parkway and Atlantic.
