The goal of the Public Safety Task Force  is to create a community where neighbors respect, trust, and forgive each other in building shared accountability for a peaceful and safe environment. The task force is dedicated to implementing the following four strategies:

  • Strategy 1: Establish a network of residents and organizations working to improve safety
  • Strategy 2: Create peace campaigns and restorative justice peace circles
  • Strategy 3: Reduce youth arrest by promoting after school programs and centers for youth starting at the end of the school day to 6:30pm from all school age children
  • Strategy 4: Create counseling programs, anger management and substance abuse counseling for 18-34 years olds

The Public Safety Task Force currently has 58 members and is always looking for more dedicated people to join forces to improve public safety in Englewood. To learn more about the four strategies, early action projects, and how to get involved please come out to the task force meeting this evening!

Excerpt from DNA Info Chicago – “A Spelman College freshman from Englewood will travel to Namibia, a country in southwest Africa this summer, but she said she needs help with expenses. Samaiya Butler, 19, was recently accepted into the WorldTeach Namibia Summer 2017 program. It offers people an opportunity to teach in primary or secondary schools. Her experience has been working with children in Englewood so through this program she would leave in June to teach African children English and computer literacy for 10 weeks.” Read full article here and donate to this great cause here – https://www.youcaring.com/samaiyabutler-767454
