CORTEZ + SCHUMER REQUEST FUNDS FOR ANTI-VIOLENCE PROGRAM IN BRONX

by Clark Adomaitis, Intern from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

Chuck Schumer, Representatives Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Jamaal Bowman are calling for $400,000 dollars from Congress to fund a violence reduction program for trauma victims at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. This follows a violent Memorial Day, in which more than a dozen were shot and a 15-year-old Bronxite was killed in shootings across all five boroughs.

Aired on the 6pm Evening News with Paul DiRienzo.
