Anti-violence organizations joined together Tuesday as part of a crisis response effort after police say eight people were shot early Monday morning at the Roosevelt Houses in Bed-Stuy. 
The shooting sent shockwaves through the community. 
Leaders from a wide range of organizations focused on violence prevention. They also focused on providing resources, jobs and mentorship to young people in the wake of all the recent gun violence in Brooklyn. 
They say shootings like these contribute to generational trauma, more violence and broken families. 
Activists also took it to the streets and walked over to the Marcy Houses to bring their message to young people.
