TALK ABOUT OAKLAND SAFETY TODAY, SUNDAY, HOLY NAMES, 3 PM

This is happening today at 3 PM:

This Sunday afternoon, February 10th from 3-5 pm at Holy Names University, Oakland's nationally-renowned crime consultant Robert Wasserman will be leading a critical community dialogue about controlling crime in our great city. I hope you will join us there.

We all care deeply about public safety and know that we, as a community, must engage in conversation and reach some common conclusions to move forward in making our city the safe place it deserves to be. 

Holy Names University has generously offered to host this event in their beautiful Valley Theater for the Performing Arts. Holy Names is conveniently located right off the Hwy 13 Redwood Rd. exit, at 3500 Mountain Blvd. (served by the 54 Bus Line). 

Robert Wasserman is the Chairman of the Strategic Policy Partnership, which assists public agencies with policing strategy development and performance improvement. He is the author of Guidance for Building Communities of Trust, published by the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. His team, which includes former NYPD & LAPD Chief Bill Bratton, is tasked with helping Oakland develop short-term crime fighting strategies, as well as a Comprehensive Community Safety Plan.
While Sunday's event is a City-sponsored forum that is part of the Wasserman team's work here in Oakland, it kicks off the larger Safe Oakland Speaker Series I have organized.

At each Safe Oakland event you will hear from leading criminal justice scholars and practitioners about the most effective approaches to reducing crime. Join this critical community dialogue about what Oakland is doing - and should be doing - to make our community safer.    

Please visit www.safeoakland.com/events  to learn about future events and speakers. Our next event will be Wednesday, April 24th at 7pm (also at Holy Names), where U.C. Berkeley School of Law Professor Justin McCrary will talk about The Economics of Safety & Police.
Please spread the word to your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues to join us this Sunday, as well as for the future Safe Oakland Speaker Series events. Join the movement for a Safe Oakland now.
With Oakland-love,
Libby
