The article focuses on the concerns of the African American community in New York following the announcement that Governor Andrew Cuomo will stop funding the anti-violence program Operation SNUG. According to community activist A. T. Mitchell, the cutting of funds for social safety programs would again increase youth gang violence and homicide rates which is compounded by high unemployment rates. It notes that the program has reduced gun violence among young people in the state.
