Agenda Item #3889 - Res. 13-074
Adopted
A Resolution to Request the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to Examine the City of Wilmington's Surge in Gund Violence Among Young Afrian American Miles

Synopsis: This Resolution is being presented by City Council for Council’s review and approval. If approved, Council would be supporting a request that the Federal government’s Department of Health and Human Services through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study an increase in gun violence among African American males in Wilmington. The Resolution focuses on the recent surge in gun violence and its disproportionate impact in Wilmington, particularly among young African American males according to statistics from the Delaware Criminal Justice Council Shooting Study of 2012. The study further states the adverse effects of shootings and violence such as desensitization of violence, post-traumatic stress, anger and the continuing cycle of violence. Given the CDC’s charge to protect America from health and safety threats and increase the health security of our nation, this Resolution is requesting the CDC to examine and respond to a crisis/pandemic of gun violence throughout the City of Wilmington.
