We're In It Together
The Florida Consortium of Urban League Affiliates, along with Derrick Brooks Charities, manage the state's Black-on-Black and Youth Crime Prevention and Intervention grant programs. In 2012 they have joined the Office of the Attorney General as partners in presenting the Preventing Crime in the Black Community conference. We are truly in it together.
What Others Say
Our youth found the conference to be informative, insightful, soul searching and entertaining. As a community leader I was very pleased with the conference; the workshops, the spiritual enrichment and the ability to network with our community leaders to bring new and exciting programs to our community.
- Tammy Anderson, Executive Director
  JUDOS, Panama City, Florida

What is the conference about?
The 30th National Preventing Crime in the Black Community Conference is a collaborative effort sponsored by Attorney General Pam Bondi to foster communication and action among practitioners through the sharing of innovative ideas and prevention strategies that have been successful in the black community. A major component of the program will be directed toward alternatives to violence among our young people. The agenda is designed to showcase successful programs and promote a positive exchange of ideas on the subject. Over 1300 people attended last year in Jacksonville.
