Community involvement is one possible way to stop violence against children. These children need to be given a sense of safety. People in the community need to start building a block-by-block safe zone in order to protect the youth from violence since the whole community is affected. You don’t put the burden on the child to fix the problem. It’s the community, family, and school’s responsibility, not the child’s responsibility. We’re supposed to be protecting the children.
For more information about how to participate and to begin organizing your block against violence, call Saint Sabina Church at (773) 483-4300.
