2120 S Jackson
From the office of Lorena González
Gun violence in the Central District is not a new problem. For decades, there are many new and legacy residents of the Central District who have worked to identify and implement solutions to disrupting gun violence in collaboration with officials at the City of Seattle. Thanks to that ongoing advocacy, progress has been made over the years. But the recent spate of shootings in the Central District underscores how much work remains to be done to keep our communities safe.
UPDATE: The event has been moved to the Seattle Vocational Institute.
I’m extremely grateful for the residents who have been actively engaging with my office and other City of Seattle officials for the last several weeks in an effort to collaboratively find strategies and solutions to address the public safety needs of the neighborhood.
As part of my commitment to be responsive to community concerns, I will be hosting a special meeting of the Gender Equity, Safe Communities, New Americans and Education (GESCNAEd) Committee next Thursday, June 20, 2019, beginning at 6:00 pm at Washington Hall.
