Community leaders will take on the problems of bullying and gangs Wednesday.

Politicians, police, teachers and others will look for solutions at an all-day conference in Manhattan.

The event is sponsored by the Council for Unity.

The group's wider goal, beyond preventing bullying and reducing gang membership, is to keep children from dropping out of school.
