Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
In recent weeks, violence in our neighborhood has reached an intolerable level. Within the last two weeks, have seen two homicides and two shootings. We will not allow the current situation to be normalized and call for all hands on deck to treat the current spike as the emergency that it is.
Alders Santiago y Crespo will join me in convening a Fair Haven Violence Emergency Response Community Leadership Meeting tomorrow, Thursday September 9 at 6:30PM via Zoom: https://bit.ly/FairHavenViolenceEmergency. We will strategize around action related to the Grand Cafe specifically—the site of one of last evening’s shootings and significant police activity in recent weeks—and discuss how to address the current crisis in Fair Haven, both as a grassroots community and in partnership with the NHPD and other city leadership.
Please let me know if you are interested in participating. It is important that we meet quickly; but if you are not able to join on such short notice, I will connect you with subsequent conversations.
Hope you see you tomorrow.
