Transforming Safety Forum
*This will be a non-police event to ensure that all attendees feel welcome*
Spanish translation (traducción español) and ASL interpreters provided. This is a family-friendly event – children welcome.
Join Ward 1 Councilmember Brianne K. Nadeau and community advocates for a crash course on the future of public safety in the District: learn more about being an effective bystander and connect with neighbors and organizations moving the conversation forward on addressing violence.
With the passage of the Neighborhood Engagement Achieves Results (NEAR) Act and the Street Harassment Prevention Act (SHPA), DC has made significant investments in public-health-focused violence prevention and alternatives to policing.
But a paradigm shift in how we create safe and healthy neighborhoods also needs to come from the bottom up. For the past several years, local organizations and informal groups of residents have been pushing the government to do better, and have been changing the dialog around violence intervention, policing, and incarceration.
We invite you to join Councilmember Nadeau and community advocates to discuss the implementation of the NEAR Act and SHPA, and how the DC government and neighbors can both work to drive a sea change in how we approach public safety.
