Role of the Co-Sponsors
Since the first “Preventing Crime in the Black Community” conference, the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) has solicited co-sponsors. Co-sponsors contribute financial or in-kind resources to support various conference activities to encourage community participation by keeping costs as low as possible.
Co-sponsors can be local, state, or federal government agencies, as well as, private not-for-profit organizations such as the Urban League, and the National Crime Prevention Council.
Co-sponsors can also be for profit businesses such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield or Target. For profit businesses must be reviewed and approved by the OAG.
