The Summer of Hope initiative seeks to address community insecurity and violence by giving folks other outlets this summer - festivals, Juneteenth events, and opportunities to build community and support each other when we need it the most. The Power Coalition for Equity and Justice will be canvassing this summer as part of the Summer of Hope Initiative to restore safety and security back into our neighborhoods and community at large.
