Partners Empowering Community Safety: Empowering Zone
Frederick Douglass Community Association, 1001 Indiana Avenue
Monday, December 15, 2014, 6-8 p.m.

On Monday, December 15, 2014, a community kick-off event will feature area human services providers, elected officials, public agencies, and various experts to focus on community involvement to help prevent and recover from Domestic Violence, Gang Violence, Human-Trafficking, and Substance Abuse. It will include personal testimonies from community members as well as an opportunity to create, what are called, Empowerment-Zones or “E-Zones” to link those most affected by violence to much needed services.

There will be a drawing that evening for one eligible attendee to win a Sony PlayStation4.

Refreshments will be served.

The event is free and open to the public.
