We CAN, a community safety partnership of three Kensington and Fairhill nonprofits, invites the public to attend the presentation of “My Voice Matters / Mi Voz Importa,” a four-month policing and community safety study conducted through innovative dialogue sessions with Kensington and Fairhill youth. The presentation will be held Tuesday, June 15 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. outside at Orinoka Civic House, 2771 Ruth Street, Philadelphia.
Since February, the We CAN collaborative has convened two-hour workshops for Kensington and Fairhill youth to talk about about safety and the role police play in their community. The workshops, facilitated by Creative Praxis, were designed to hear from young people ages 14-24, and develop recommendations with them to improve safety in the Kensington and Fairhill communities.
"Our hope is that community and police officers will incorporate the recommendations of young people on an individual, cultural, and institutional level so that all people in Kensington and Fairhill can experience safety,” said Creative Praxis Founder Nia Eubanks-Dixon.
We CAN is an interagency partnership funded by the U.S. Department of Justice. Since 2018 three local nonprofits—NKCDC, HACE and Impact Services—have been working with community partners and the 24th District Philadelphia Police to build trust, eliminate crime, and advocate for the Kensington and Fairhill communities.
