S.O.S. in the Huffington Post

S.O.S. got a great shout-out in the Huffington Post last week in a post by the Director of Chicago Ceasefire, Tio Hardiman. The article discusses how the Ceasefire model can be replicated in other cities and points out those who are successfully implementing  their anti-gun violence program (us!)

A December 10 New York Times article, "Gunfire Will No Longer Be Met by Silence," featured the work of Save Our Streets (S.O.S.), the CeaseFire replication site in Crown Heights, NY. In the article, author Tim Stelloh comments that the Baltimore and Kansas City, MO sites have experienced "mixed results," raising an important question: this model is succeeding in Crown Heights and Chicago, but can it work in other cities? The answer is yes, as long as these three elements are present: strong leadership, adherence to the CeaseFire model and consistent funding. "
