CeaseFire in Springfield Works to Stop Rash of Street Violence


A group that is trying to put a stop to the rash of violence on Springfield streets admits it isn’t easy to get young people to listen.

 

CeaseFire began operating through the Springfield Urban League in early March… right around the time that police say rival groups of individuals began targeting each other in a series of retaliatory shootings.

 

Andre Neal with CeaseFire says his group tries to get involved and mediate disputes before they get out of hand… and to encourage people to pursue non-violent ways of settling their conflicts. He’s urging the community to help reinforce that message.
