LISC Safety and Justice will present on their model of collaborative problems solving to address neighborhood crime and safety challenges, including discussion of why we should concentrate on place, the problem-solving process, the roles of community partners, and what success can look like. This method incorporates proven crime reduction strategies with relationship- and capacity-building approaches to support sustainable neighborhood improvement.
The webinar will include an overview of the Alameda County Eden Night Live project, part of a broad effort including LISC and ArtPlace America to address community and public safety issues using creative placemaking.
