Night Out for Safety and Liberation is a national event where we will redefine and reimagine what safety means to us. Every year on the first Tuesday of August, people across the country participate in neighborhood block parties as part of National Night Out, which promotes “police-community” partnerships as the route to safer communities. But we know that police are not the pathway to safety.
On Night Out for Safety and Liberation, we are starting a different conversation about what #SafetyIs—one that is focused on how we can build equity, power, and opportunity in our communities. Join in by participating in this TweetChat, a live event anchored around a hashtag: #SafetyIs.
We hope you will join us for this TweetChat where we will discuss what safety means to us and how we can build real safety in our communities.
