What's on the Agenda? 

  • Rachel Mathews introduces us to the Home Match program, a nonprofit shared housing program from Front Porch. Want to know a thing or two now about Home Match? Home Match Literature
  • Tom Donovan from our steering committee presents our area crime statistics.
  • Scott Kaminski of Slapwagon Studios shares insights from a recent gunfire incident outside his music studio on MacArthur & 38th and his response, the Stop the Violence BBQ. What's the Slapwagon Studio mantra? "Music Brings Us Together."
  • Toni Bird and Ryn Beeley, neighbors from Maxwell Park, will briefly share their experiences with block organizing.
  • Brian Cassidy of Oakland's Neighborhood Services Department will briefly go over the concepts of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). CPTED  (pronounced "sep-ted"), also known as Designing Out Crime, is a multi-disciplinary approach of crime prevention that uses urban and architectural design and the management of built and natural environments. CPTED strategies aim to reduce victimization, deter offender decisions that precede criminal acts, and build a sense of community among inhabitants so they can gain territorial control of areas, reduce crime, and minimize fear of crime.
  •  Nathan Stalnaker of Janani’s office will present 3 Big Safety Ideas.

Will There be Food? 

A little! La Farine will provide pastries, and Victoria Wake of Dimond Improvement Association will bring mandarins. We will also have hot tea and drinking water. Do you enjoy feeding your neighbors? Feel free to bring food to share. Let us know if you need support from us with utensils or the like.
