The Ella Baker Center for Human Rights is hosting our Night Out for Safety and Liberation event at Lake Merritt Boulevard Amphitheater on Tuesday, August 4th. Traditionally, National Night Out events focus on community-police relations, but we know that #SafetyIs about more than policing and crime. At our community gathering, neighbors can meet and discuss what safety means to them and how we can achieve it.
The program will include crafts and activities for kids, collaborative art-making, musical performances, and food. We will share posters and stickers that people can bring to their own neighborhood National Night Out events, to spark conversations about re-imagining and redefining public safety.
