Organized by the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods:

Join people in your neighborhood for a discussion about what public safety is and how we can address the variety of public safety issues in our neighborhoods.

Tuesday, June 29th 2010, from 6pm to 8pm
NE Coalition of Neighborhoods Office,
4815 NE 7th Ave.
(on 7th Avenue at Wygant, on buslines #6 and #72)
Please RSVP to Celesta Paul

Presentation or Discussion Topics to include:
• Crime prevention resources
• Food security
• Air quality and environmental health
• Emergency Preparedness
• Community policing

Why? We have heard from people through the 12 neighborhoods that there are a variety of public safety concerns. In response to this, we have worked with a few neighborhood association board members to design an event that will bring neighbors together with the community resources that can help address your public safety needs.

What will happen at the Roundtable? We will have presentations from different organizations who are addressing public safety in different ways. Then you will be able to meet in your neighborhood groups to determine what specific public safety issues you would like to work on in your neighborhood, and start thinking about how to make that happen.
