A man was found dead in Pittsburgh’s Spring Hill neighborhood, and a shooting on Cedar Avenue left three people dead, two of them innocent bystanders.
The North Side Partnership Project is distributing thousands of signs and T-shirts encouraging residents to call the police.
“It’s about getting the people talking to one another because when they talk to one another they’ll share information. The police can’t do this. If we don’t do it in our communities, it’s not going to get done,” said English Burton, of the Partnership Project.
We are a North Side-based partnership of groups and organizations. We are committed to empowering families and neighborhoods by providing coordinated and comprehensive services while developing community structures for operation.
Last month the city announced $1 million in Stop the Violence grants to community groups, including the North Side Partnership Project.
