Join Old West End Neighborhood Initiatives for a community discussion on the origins of criminal activity. What leads people to commit crimes against others? What needs are not being met? How do we move forward with practical measures for improvement? Local community leaders will provide insight into this topic as we advance the conversation to understand where the crime issue begins. This event IS an OWENI community meeting, and will begin at our normal time of 6pm at Kent Library on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. We hope to see you there!
