Syracuse has targeted gangs and gang activity to combat violence, but one group says to solve this problem the city needs to focus on neighborhood relationships.

Cities across the country are developing different ways to combat violence and crime within their urban landscapes. The City of Syracuse is no different. For the last 15 years the Syracuse Police Department and community members have developed programs and groups to help make the city a safer place.

Despite these initiatives, violence and crime have not changed much, and in some cases have even increased.

At a recent press conference, four leaders spoke to press about why they are supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders.

A grassroots campaign does not take place in a grand ballroom. It typically doesn’t sell out arenas or stadiums.

The Vermont senator is resonating with so many people in his bid to win the nomination of the Democratic Party.

He emerges from a dissipating cloud — dressed in his own black beanie, flannel-lined denim jacket, black jeans and black leather combat boots — and heads down the porch’s stairs, directing party-ready guests toward the back door.
