Selfies 4 Safety campaign aims to prevent gun violence in Crown Heights
BROOKLYN - Selfies have dominated social media over the past year, and now they're being used as a fun way to spread the word about non-violence.
Selfies 4 Safety is a new campaign that encourages teens to snap their self-taken photographs to help prevent gun violence among youth in Crown Heights.
