Sankofa Students at Frankford Civic

About 20 people turned out at the Frankford Civic Association meeting on March 3rd.

Discussion centered on the town watch proposal and Stephen Bowne distributed a flyer that he proposes using in his area of Frankford to solicit volunteers.  In Frankford it would take the form of an Eyes and Ears activity rather than an active patrol.  Bowne is also interested in the Safe Corridors program when enough people become active.

Students from Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School made a presentation of their research project titled the “Triple H Effect” which connected Homelessness, Healthy Eating and Human Trafficking.  Egypt Henry, Nairha Pugh-Bell and Abdul Foster did a great job and answered questions from the group about their research.

The next Frankford Civic Association meeting will be held on April 7th at 7 PM at St. Marks Church at 4442 Frankford Avenue.
