Join us on Wednesday, December 8th for PACDC’s annual meeting, our first in-person event! You’ll learn about key strides PACDC is advancing and how community groups are playing a central role in fostering community safety across the region. CDC Members will also vote for PACDC’s Board of Directors.
Pam Bridgeforth, PACDC’s Director of Programs, will moderate a panel discussion of local and regional leaders working to create safe communities. Our conversation will explore strategies the city is implementing to combat crime/safety and what community groups can do to support that work. You will also gain insights on helping communities see beyond crime and re-examine long-term neighborhood planning for preventative initiatives and collective effectiveness.
