SAFE SUMMER ’23 helps build the culture of Peace, love, respect and safety for our community.
Historically during Summer season the rate of gun violence begins to rise as youth, adults, families and community begin to engage in outdoor and recreational activities. Safe summer 2023 was developed to address gun violence before it happens. We need to be proactive to ensure the safest summer possible.
