Ward 1 Community Safety Forum

Each year, I host an annual public safety town hall. Residents typically get a chance to hear from government officials and have the opportunity to discuss in small groups new ways that we can work together to improve safety. Due to the restrictions on mass gatherings, this year we broke the event up into two parts in order to still allow for residents to have these important conversations. On June 17th, I hosted a telephone town hall so that constituents could hear updates from government officials. Click here to listen.

The next part of the conversation will be on Wednesday July 15th, 2020 at 6:30pm. I’ll be joined by community leaders in a more interactive format to discuss actionable steps that we can take together to improve safety in Ward 1. REGISTER HERE.

Panels will include speakers from:

Columbia Heights Village Tenants Association

Christian Tabernacle Church of God, Inc.

Jubilee Housing

Latin American Youth Center

Miriam's Kitchen

Office of Attorney General, Juvenile Diversion

Ward 1 Public Safety Coalition

Ward 1 student representative
