Our Mission

The Coney Island Anti-Violence Collaborative seeks to reduce incidents of violence in Coney Island by strengthening community relationships, developing community-based structures for preventing and addressing conflict, and working with local organizations and groups to expand supportive services oriented toward reducing violence.

Who We Are


The Coney Island Anti-Violence Collaborative (CIAVC) is a coalition of Coney Island residents, non-profit organizations, businesses, schools, elected officials, and other stakeholders who have come together to address the issue of gun violence in our community.  

What We Do​

The Collaborative affects the cycle of violence on a community scale. Our purpose is twofold:

  1. Explain and discover the implicit and explicit role violence has played in the lives of Coney Island residents and

  2. Provide alternate ways of thinking about violence to promote a shift in perspective.
