CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati is taking part in one of a kind initiative in an effort to combat gender-based violence.

Spearheaded by Cincinnati City Councilmember P.G. Sittenfield's office, the newly formed coalition consists of local officials, schools including the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University, as well as several support and prevention groups across the Tri-State.

Over the next eight months, the coalition will work to create public awareness campaigns, training programs and a central based web portal to provide campus and community resourced for survivors.
