HISTORY

Established in 2003, the Mayor's Gang Prevention Task Force (MGPTF) was created in response to a significant increase in violent crime in Santa Rosa. In lieu of a law enforcement approach to address youth and gang violence, Santa Rosa residents pledged for 20 years to support violence prevention efforts with the passage of MEASURE O (2004), a transaction and use tax of a quarter cent. In 2015, the MGPTF change its name to the Santa Rosa Violence Prevention Partnership and uses proceeds from MEASURE O (2004) to provide grants to non-profit organizations and local schools to provide social services in the strategic areas of school readiness, advocacy, and mediation in the street, students participation and prevention of school absenteeism and development of the workforce.
