You are invited to come out and show your concern.
St. Mark’s Church will be hosting a community engagement event on Martin Luther King day from 1-3 pm on the 4700 block of Griscom at Arrott Street.
There will be a separate prayer service to follow on Hawthorne Street (where the recent fatal barricade situation transpired) at 4 pm led by Pastor Richard Smith from Faith Assembly of God.
Many community groups have confirmed their attendance. The aim is to bring the community together and have the various organization engage with the community and share a little bit about what each of us does with a goal of fostering a sense of community, discussing available resources, and addressing violence, especially gun violence, in the community. The 15th District PDAC and another group will be providing refreshments.
