Night Out for Safety and Liberation is an annual event which takes place on the first Tuesday of August where we redefine and re-imagine what public safety means for our communities.
Our goal is to change the conversation about public safety to be less focused on fear, punishment, and criminalization and more focused on how we can build equity and power by investing in our communities.
NOSL was Founded in 2013, as an alternative to the more police-centric National Night Out, which highlights police-community partnerships as the pathway to community safety. Last year we held events in over 25 cities, nationwide. From block parties to rallies Night Out for Safety and Liberation is an opportunity for communities to come together for conversations about public safety. It is a space where we can reimagine what #safetyis.
