S.O.S. works to reduce shootings and killings and to build safer neighborhoods. Whenever there is a shooting in the S.O.S. target area, the team responds by organizing a Shooting Response. We will have a shooting response tonight, January 8th, at 6:30pm on the corner of Albany Ave. and St. Marks Ave in Crown Heights. This rally is in response to a shooting that took place on Wednesday morning. A 27 year old man was shot and died soon after at Kings County Hospital.
Everyone is welcomed at a shooting response. No skills or prior experience is needed. We hold anti-violence signs, speak with passersby, and stand in solidarity as S.O.S. staff and other community leaders speak out via megaphone to the neighborhood at large. There is power in numbers! Join us tonight!
