On Tuesday, August 7th, at 6:00 p.m. in the 200 block of East Linden Street, we'll celebrate the 8th Annual Ed Zunino National Night Out. The event is the center of our year-round response to the sense of hopelessness that seems to tear at our nation every time a story about a violent incident between police and people of color dominates a news cycle. It's an intensive effort: Police officers visit our Study Buddies elementary after-school program weekly to read, help with homework, and play Sharks-and-Minnows, and we facilitate police visits to heavily policed neighborhoods across our region each summer.

The principle is simple: If police officers and at-risk children of color know each other by name, better outcomes follow. In a neighborhood transformed by a collaboration between former Chief of Police Ed Zunino and our own President and Founder Theresa Bass, we believe living in community with others can create real, meaningful change.

Each summer, we create interviews, projects, presentations and events that give our great kids and our great cops reasons to talk to each other. Each year, we see connections made, relationships grow, and friendships form. Each year, the hard work of overcoming barriers seems to get easier. Each year, it gets harder to imagine an incident where mistrust and anger could turn into tragedy.

We'd like to ask that you consider a donation to sponsor National Night Out and support our efforts throughout the year to find ways to live in community with folks who need us. Your investment in our simple idea that people can find common ground will help to make sure that our region stays safe, and will promote our core message: Living well together as a community takes work, but we're a shining example of that work being worth it.
