AUGUST 2017 MEETING

EYES ON THE STREET: WGNA's 10th of AUGUST BOARD MEETING ON PUBLIC SAFETY

WGNA's next Monthly Board & Membership Meeting is scheduled for the second Thursday, 10 August 2017 at the Willow Glen Public Library branch at 7:00 pm. 

A guest presentation will feature Mini Le from the San Jose Police Department's Crime Prevention Unit. She will provide us with information on the topic of "Community Safety". 

This is a participatory meeting and presentation with the related theme of "Eyes on the Street", a popular phrase coined by Jane Jacobs, who is the well known author and activist in urban studies and sociology. Jacob's reference takes community safety and neighborhood watch programs to the next level, adding that sense of personal care and attention, or what we often call "natural surveillance". 

The ideas is that, in a well designed urban ecology, people. an participate and"keep eyes on the street" so as to be caring and mindful of each other, and thus keeping each other out of harm's way. It's about creating a caring environment.

We invite you to attend with all your questions and comments... and to participate. We'll keep an out for you! See you there!
