Aim4Peace Neighborhood Action Teams host A Day of Awareness
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Aim4Peace: Movement to Stop the Shooting, an initiative of the City Manager’s Office, invites the community to A Day of Awareness on Jan. 17 at 10 a.m. in the Vineyard Neighborhood Association conference room at 4301 E. 43rd St.
The event is hosted by Aim4Peace Neighborhood Action Teams and is a continuance of the teams’ efforts to serve and assist the community by increasing visibility and familiarity with team members. The event also serves to showcase the efforts of 11 partner community organizations that work to impact and help eliminate violence in the city.
“The Day of Awareness is a great opportunity for our workers to reach out to the community and give firsthand information about the Aim4Peace program,” City Manager Wayne A. Cauthen said. “The success of the program depends on creating strong relationships with community members, and this event is a step to accomplishing that.”
A Day of Awareness also offers the opportunity to accompany a team in canvassing a section of the community to get a better understanding of the job of team members.
