Strike Against Crime (PDF)
Community Engagement (CE):
Making New Orleans a safer city means engaging and empowering every member of our community to speak and act for peace.
SilenceIsViolence mobilizes anti-violence community engagement through public activities including peace walks, candlelight vigils, youth outreach fairs, and victim memorials.
Since 2007, our Peace Walks have carried resource information and encouragement through neighborhood afflicted by violence. Annual celebrations of the Night Out Against Crime, National Crime Victims Rights Week, and the SIV Strike Against Crime Week connect and inspire citizens from across the city to make a difference together.
We engage local musicians and artists during Community Engagement programs, capturing peace and hope through creative expression.
