St. Mark A.M.E. Church’s Social Action Forum Committee will spearhead efforts to organize efforts with other clergy and their congregations along with residents of the Atkinson Avenue area, to take back its community from rising crime in the area. This combined effort was prompted by the rash of homicides in recent weeks along the Atkinson corridor.
The community is invited to attend a community forum at St. Mark, 1616 W. Atkinson Ave., on August 16 at 6 p.m. to discuss ways and means of addressing these concerns and helping elected officials reduce the violence in the neighborhood. For more information contact, Warner Jackson or Rev. Darryl Williams at 562-8030.
