Featured Photo: The Strong Cities Network is driven by an International Steering Committee of 25 cities and municipalities from different regions across the globe. Cities and municipalities selected for the steering committee were chosen based on their leadership and commitment to sharing information and expertise through the SCN. Steering committee members are drawn from different global regions to ensure diversity within the network.
The International Steering Committee convenes once a year at the SCN Global Summit to discuss the thematic priorities of the SCN and determine the strategic direction of the network. The SCN Steering Committee’s primary functions include:
What is Strong Cities Network?
Launched at the United Nations in September 2015, the Strong Cities Network (SCN) is the first ever global network of mayors, municipal-level policy makers and practitioners united in building social cohesion and community resilience to counter violent extremism in all its forms.
What are the principles of the SCN?
The SCN operates from the assumption that communities and local governments are both part of the solution to address violent extremism. The SCN is driven by a number of fundamental principles:
- A commitment to address violent extremism in all of its forms
- A recognition that violent extremism and prevention efforts should not be associated with any particular religion, nationality or ethnic group
- A commitment to work in partnership with local communities, on an inclusive, collaborative, and non-discriminatory basis and in compliance with international human rights standard
To counter violent extremism we need determined action at all levels of governance,” said Governing Mayor Stian Berger Røsland of Oslo while commenting on their participation in the SCN. “To succeed, we must coordinate our efforts and cooperate across borders. The Strong Cities Network will enable cities across the globe pool our resources, knowledge and best practices together and thus leave us standing stronger in the fight against one of the greatest threats to modern society.”

AG Lynch Announces Global Police Force Partnership With UN:
During her speech at the United Nations, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced that the Department of Justice is launching a global police force in order to combat “violent extremism” in the United States.
The SCN will connect cities, city-level practitioners and the communities they represent through a series of workshops, trainings and sustained city partnerships. Network participants will also contribute to and benefit from an online repository of municipal-level good practices and web-based training modules and will be eligible for grants supporting innovative, local initiatives and strategies that will contribute to building social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism.
If you believe that the radical religious Jihad is coming for you in NY LA NO Boston Chicago and Seattle and you are willing to seed control over local policing to an international Cabal YOU MAY HAVE JUST LOST TRACK OF AMERICA!

And WE at GoJNN.com say If you are worried about DYING at the hands of ISIS and NOT worried about a formation of the global police state, WAKE UP PEOPLE!!
Here is more of their stuff at http://strongcitiesnetwork.org/training/modules/
As part of their membership, strong cities are given access to a series of training modules on CVE tools that can be used at the municipal-level. Training modules are made up of a series of lessons containing prezis, video content and multiple-choice questions. Lessons are intended to provide practical steps for cities on how to use these tools effectively in their communities. Modules inform and test students’ knowledge while also providing information and support for policy-makers and practitioners operating at the local level. Module participants are encouraged to use the comments section to provide feedback on lessons. This feedback will be incorporated into future modules to improve SCN training.
