America's Night Out
Against Crime!

When: Tue Aug 06th, 2013 7-10PM
Where: Your Neighborhood!

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of National Night Out by hosting an event in your neighborhood on August 6th.

Last year millions of people, from every state, across 15,000 communities participated in events to help make communities safe and raise awareness about anticrime programs.

National Night Out is a time when individuals and groups are encourgaged to gather together after dark in parks and other public places for wholesome activities. The idea is to symbolically reclaim our public spaces by using them, encouraging other people to use them and making the space feel safe, and discouraging illegal and anti-social activity.

Go ahead -- invite your neighbors -- gather on someone's lawn or porch and turn-on the lights! Celebrate National Night Out 2013. Take a stand.

Don't let crime control your neighborhood.

Come learn about graffiti, what some of it means and why we need to clean it up so quickly. Gresham Police Officer Matt Fagan is our local expert on the subject and is a great presenter. We will also have a representative from Code Compliance to talk about why folks may get violation notices around graffiti and again, how important it is to clean it up. Cathy Harrington, Office of Neighborhoods and Community Engagement, will talk about our need for volunteers to help clean it up.

Getting rid of graffiti is everyone’s goal (well, except for the taggers). We hope this community discussion on the topic will not only help educate, but also motivate.
