In the past few weeks, our district has been rocked by tragedy and disbelief with the death of Josue Flores.  This past weekend, Council Member Karla Cisneros hosted Calle Seguras: Workshops to Keep Our Streets Safe. 

Thank you for all who attended and gained more insight into making our neighborhoods safer.  Also, thanks to the different City Departments, law enforcement agencies and external organizations, who served as resources for the community.
As we continue to heal, we must also continue to work together in open dialogues about community based solutions for District H.
