Building Community Leadership for Sustainable Crime Reduction
JULY 28, 2015 - 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
Active community leadership is often the lynchpin for achieving and sustaining safety and revitalization gains. In high crime neighborhoods, engaging community members in developing and implementing projects that reduce crime and improve quality of life is particularly important. Join LISC and leaders from BJA’s Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program for a conversation on the fundamentals of meaningful community engagement and approaches to involving residents in decision-making about crime reduction strategies and broader efforts to improve neighborhoods.
Practitioners from multiple sectors involved in community building and safety efforts will benefit from the discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions to the presenters during the webinar. There is no registration fee or cost to participate.
About the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program: The Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance is supporting data-driven, comprehensive responses to crime in some of the country’s most troubled communities through the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program (BCJI). As the national Training and Technical Assistance Provider for BCJI, LISC is supporting cross-sector partnerships in the 46 cities funded by BCJI to date as they seek to address the drivers of crime in persistent “hot spot” locations which are thwarting progress towards neighborhood revitalization.
