Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships

Connecting Faith, Fatherhood, Youth Violence & Reentry

The U.S. DOJ Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships was pleased to participate in the 2nd Annual Summit on Preventing Youth Violence in Washington, D.C. as a part of the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention.  The Forum is an effort to elevate youth and gang violence as issues of national significance, and to enhance the capacity of localities to more effectively prevent youth and gang violence.  I was particularly excited this year that so many powerful national and local faith-based and non-profit leaders were able to participate including:

  • Lecrae Moore, Grammy Nominated Hip Hop artist
  • Pastor Keith Norman, First Baptist Church, Memphis, TN
  • Pastor Michael McBride, PICO National Network
  • James Rodriguez, President, Fathers & Families Coalition of America, Inc. 
  • Deborah Aguilar, Founder, “A Time for Grieving”, Salinas, CA
  • Sue Badeau, Casey Family Programs
Lecrae Moore
