Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs welcomes Milwaukee residents to attend the seventh annual Heal the Hood block party and resource fair on Saturday, and encourages all to join the conversation on how to end violence and crime in the community while learning about current issues.
Heal the Hood is a campaign that strives to promote self-sustainability and non-violence. Saturday’s block party and resource fair will be a gathering of like-minded neighbors coming together as a community to create something positive. It will take place from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 26 at N. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. and W. Chambers, and will feature information from lead in the water, the STD/HIV crisis, housing and home health care, to youth programs that will keep kids busy over the summer. There will also be free food, local vendors, live entertainment and more. Do not miss out on the biggest block party yet!
This event is sponsored by the Office of Violence Prevention, Alderwoman Coggs, Running Rebels, and WestCare Wisconsin, Inc.
