Rochester, N.Y. - Recent violence in Rochester has made it busy, for not only police, but another agency-- Pathways to Peace.
The anti-violence group was recognized for their public service by the Monroe County Legislature on Tuesday night.
Pathways to Peace is focused on preventing youth violence. Its director acknowledges the last few weeks have been a challenge.
“We have some youth as young as 15, who have not only brandished firearms but have also been involved in stabbings and things of that nature, says Victor Saunders of Pathways to Peace. “But with the work law enforcement is dong, Pathways is doing, and other community partners I think we will turn the corner on violence.”
Next up, Pathways to Peace will expand of their community service into Buffalo.
