Perhaps you remember January 2008's Silence is Violence March on City Hall.
On January 9th, 2009 we were asked to wear Red to Strike against Crime. To quote the website: Striking means refusing to go through the motions of normalcy.
Those of us concerned about crime aren't just doing things one day a year. We are actively working throughout the year to do everything we can to reduce crime. So EVERY WEEK, EVERY FRIDAY of 2009 should be a Silence is Violence RED Friday. When each Friday we see more and more RED we will know that support is building and people are watching and care about what is happening in the City. Silence is Violence says speak out, act to stop the killing.
Every RED Friday will remind us that we are all in this together.
