Emergency Community Mobilization Meeting | May 28

flyer for emergency meeting

The violence that has been plaguing our community far too long must be addressed with coordinated efforts from multiple city departments, law enforcement, service agencies and residents.

To that end we are requesting your presence at an emergency community mobilization. We are holding this mobilization meeting. We will have community leaders, business owners and residents in attendance.

Our goal is to have consistent, coordinated city commitment to root out the violence in our neighborhood. And we need you there to hear our concerns and ideas and to marshal a response that addresses our community's deep seated needs.

When: Thursday, May 28th


Where: Teen Center at St. Peter's
