Teens from Neighborhood House of Milwaukee will host a community forum, WE COME IN PEACE: The Safe Zone Summit, on Friday, May 29th, 2015 from 5 to 8pm. Guest speakers include gun violence survivors and witnesses, law enforcement officers from District 3, and performances by Neighborhood House teens reflecting on their concerns.

Recent surges in gun violence, combined with stark racial disparities in the criminal justice system and the nation’s highest incarceration rate, have made many in Milwaukee justifiably concerned about their safety as summer approaches. Teens on the city’s near west side are initiating a peace building effort bringing together youth, neighbors, and community liaison officers in dialog.
