Event description

Description

All are invited to join us for this Night Walk in east San Jose.

All are invited to join us for this Night Walk in east San Jose. It is simple. We connect with one another and our neighbors as we walk a short route through east San Jose.

Night Walks started in Boston as a way to bring a wide variety of people together in collaboration with city leaders in an effort to prevent violence in the streets. The simple idea of walking together in large groups listening to the needs of the neighbors and offering hope has spread across the nation and now Silicon Valley Progressive Faith Community has joined PACT, San Jose Police Department, along with other community organizations and faith leaders to stop gun violence in our community. This is a chance to love our neighbors and be a peaceful presence in our aim to transform the world.

Come to Hyland Ave near St. John Vianney Church in the Alum Rock Neighborhood. You will be given a yellow "Night Watch Volunteer" parka to wear and we will walk together.

The San Jose Police Department identified this area as a hot spot for gang activity so with a consistent, visible, peace-seeking presence, the goal is violence-reduction for this modest, residential Alum Rock neighborhood.
