Restorative Resolutions for Neighborhood Issues

In light of the misguided and tragic use of firearms (July 28th) — and in the name of shifting the narrative on how Rainier Beach is represented when such things occur– we asked this question at our Shifting the Narrative Community Gathering:

“How are we resolving the issues in our neighborhood in a RESTORATIVE way?”


Youth & Neighborhood Engagement

To enhance community safety in the Rainier Beach neighborhood through youth and neighborhood engagement – an evidence based crime prevention methodology that addresses specific street segments where incidents that contribute to youth crime are high.
