U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans visit to Indiana

November 3, 2017

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to visit Indianapolis on Monday to meet with members of an anti-violence group.

Bill McCleery, spokesman for Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, said Sessions had accepted Hill's invitation to meet Monday with Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition members.

That group led by several African-American ministers is known for its campaigns to stem violence in crime-plagued city neighborhoods.

McCleery said Sessions will discuss the group's "proven model for reducing urban youth gun violence in neighborhoods." He said details of the visit would be released later Friday.

Vice President Mike Pence met with Ten Point Coalition members during an Aug. 11 visit to Indianapolis. The former Indiana governor said the group's model of violence reduction should be replicated across urban areas in the nation.
