“NATIONAL NIGHT OUT” Cincinnati Has Community Events at Six Locations**

Once again it’s time for the annual National Night Out.   In Cincinnati, as in cities and towns all across our nation, neighbors will get together for cook outs, socials, and other events to celebrate and strengthen their community.  The Cincinnati Police Department has partnered with community groups in each District to highlight crime prevention, to discuss public safety initiatives and to foster positive police community relations.  There will be exhibits, displays and demonstrations with specialized police units and equipment.  Food, music, activities and games will add to the festive spirit.

The first National Night Out was observed in 1984.  The National Association of Town Watch promoted it as a way to involve people in anticrime efforts.  People were invited to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors, and come outside to meet with neighbors.  That first year, 2.5 million people in 400 communities in 23 states took part.  Now, more than 37 million people in 15,000 communities in all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases around the world participate in National Night Out.  It has become our nation’s largest annual crime prevention and drug prevention event.

Now that you’ve attended one or more Rethinking Racism educational events, you might have found yourself thinking, “Where can I go with my passion and energy?” “What can I do?” Rethinking Racism has been thinking about this, too. We have a plan and you’re invited to participate!

The Pro-Action Café is a chance to bring any of your musings, ideas, projects and dreams to the table and have the opportunity to talk with others about their thoughts and ideas. Perhaps a workable plan will emerge and you will have some people to work with you – or you may find a project or plan that “strikes home” with you, in which case you can be part of a group working on something about which you feel passionate. There will also be people who have experience and a level of expertise bringing their talents to the table in the form of information, the “right” questions, and recommendations.

The attached flyer gives the basic time, place and registration information. Additionally, we want you to know that, because of the nature of the evening, this is a limited attendance event. We can accommodate 50 people. RSVPs are necessary. Please use the Eventbrite registration.

Our hope is that out of this past year of talking, sharing and listening, will come action that will contribute to the raising up of equality and equity in our city.

The Rethinking Racism Team
