Last night, October 16th, S.O.S. held a community rally on the corner of St Johns Ave and Utica Ave in response to a shooting that occurred there on Friday night, leaving a young man seriously wounded. Members of the S.O.S. Clergy Action Network addressed the community, urging those listening to pass on the message: “put the guns down.”

Approximately 15 community members attended, joining SOS staff in chanting “Enough is enough!” Many passersby stopped and engaged in discussions about the desire to create a safer neighborhood. Thank you to all who joined us.
