Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl has scheduled a Safe Summer Summit on June 4 to bring residents and non-profit and faith based organizations of Evanston together to develop solutions to reduce violence, especially among the city’s young people.

The session will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Ave.

The mayor plans to challenge the community to take a stand against neighborhood violence and ask that every Evanston resident pledge to do one thing that will help reduce violence in their respective neighborhood.

She will also ask representatives from the schools districts, churches, and nonprofits as well as the Police Department and Parks Recreation & Community Services Department to share their summer plans to help reduce violence.

  1. Summit

    One thing I can say is our Mayor cares about our young and is willing to get the town geared up to challenge the Issues!

    But lets be clear she cant do it alone, the people who do business and live, go to school, and use this towns services in any way need to help!  Cause this Violence has hurt our town and  its ability to attract people and Business, and the metal health of our young!

    I almost never agree with most direction this city takes, but I stand and applaud the Mayor for this move!
