We are saddened to inform you that yesterday there were TWO shootings in our catchment area in Crown Heights. We respond to every shooting that occurs in the S.O.S. target area. We respond to ensure that these tragedies and insults to the community do not pass unremarked as though they are normal and acceptable, and to create a safe space on our streets, at the site of the shooting, where neighborhood residents can raise their voices in protest.
Please join us tomorrow to respond to these shootings:
Tomorrow, Friday, January 20, 2012
6:00PM at Albany Ave and Prospect Place
6:45PM at 1288 St Johns Pl between Troy & Schenectady
Each response will last only about twenty minutes so please be prompt. We will walk together from Albany Ave. and Prospect Ave., the site of the first shooting response, to St Johns Place between Troy and Schenectady, the site of the second.
