Event description

Description


Since our first round of trainings in November, newly trained NEAR Act Ambassadors (like many of you) have been speaking out at ANC meetings, attending community forums, expanding the conversation about approaches to public safety, and making the NEAR Act a campaign issue for candidates across the District.

Now, we want to bring everyone together again to share your successes -- and challenges -- and strategize together as the DC Council’s legislative and budget seasons approach. We hope you can join us for one of two meetings later this month. We encourage you to attend the meeting assigned to your Ward, but all are welcome at either session.

If you have attended a previous NEAR Act Ambassador training, please note that the “report back” discussion and strategy session will begin at 6:45p.m.

If you’re new to this work or missed the earlier trainings, it’s not too late to join us! We will hold a 30-minute orientation from 6:15-6:45 p.m. before each meeting to get you caught up on the basics. You can find out more about the NEAR Act in this one-page summary, and learn more about the NEAR Act Ambassador program here. There are also a number of resources available at www.bit.ly/TheNEARact if you’d like to jump in before the meetings!

Whether you’ve already attended a training or are just learning about the NEAR Act, we’re excited to work with you toward real public safety and justice. Please email us with any questions, and please share these events with your networks!
