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.
