BIVO Team Holds Shooting Response in Support of Team Member N’Dia Brissett

BIVO was joined by its partners from the NYC Crisis Management Systems (CMS) and the Brownsville Safety Alliance at a shooting response and vigil on Friday night after BIVO Team Member N’Dia Brissett was shot on Thursday night. After gathering at the corner of Mother Gaston & Sutter Avenues, the crowd made its way to nearby Brookdale Hospital in a show of support where N’Dia remains hospitalized.

The shooting response was also attended by many community and faith leaders and was covered by both News 12 Brooklyn and PIX 11 News.

Additionally, the BIVO team was recently featured in two news stories — a USA Today piece about the important work of violence interrupters, which features an extensive interview with BIVO Team Member Taronn “Tree” Sloane, and a Gothamist piece about NYC crime statistics in 2023.
