The Coalition Against Violence sponsored an event at Duquesne University to present strategies to reduce the violence that plagues many Pittsburgh communities. Coalition members say it takes more than just a few community groups to end the violence, and provided strategies that were developed over a year-long effort. They offered recommendations to various facets of the community, from faith-based groups to the media, to young athletes, on steps they can take to eliminate violence. Speakers say it will take a combined effort for this to be different from other non-violence rallies and meetings where there is much talk and little action.
