Over the coming months, our administration will launch a number of initiatives to energize our citizens around murder reduction, including this Crime Action Summit led by Criminal Justice Commissioner James Carter.
This will not be a summit of false hope and unfulfilled promises. This will be a time of action where we link citizens with organizations and programs that can use their help to make an impact on the streets. This will be a time when we remind each other of the needed commitment to intervene and invest in the lives of neighbors, particularly young men who continue to resort to violent lifestyles.
This Crime Summit will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2011 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM at the UNO Lakefront Arena 6801 Franklin Avenue New Orleans, La. This event is open to the public.
