Save Our Streets (SOS) Crown Heights hosts their second community conversation tomorrow night from 6-8pm at the Bethany Methodist Church, 1208 St. Johns Place in Crown Heights. This is a great opportunity to learn about the hard and vital work of violence prevention that SOS is engaged in, and to think about how all of us can contribute to it. After the shooting on Franklin Avenue two weekends ago, none of us should be complacent about the threat of gun violence in our communities (and I urge the anonymous posters from the linked thread who suggested the community does not "step up" about gun violence to go and educate yourselves about this community-based effort to do just that). Complete details are on the flyer, above, and at their website.
