Houston Night Out For Safety And Liberation says
Come meet Texas Advocates for Justice as we host a Night Out for Safety and Liberation (#NOSL16)! The Night Out for Safety and Liberation campaign strives to redefine what #SafetyIs, and we want to hear what safety means to you.

This event serves as an alternative to National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Neighborhood Watch. Traditionally, National Night Out events focus on community-police relations and neighborhood watch and surveillance programs, but Night Out for Safety and Liberation is a space where community members can re-imagine and redefine what public safety means to them.

Too often, conversations about public safety revolve around crime and fear. Safety is about more than that—it’s about having a living wage job, access to healthy food, and being able to afford childcare, healthcare, and housing. To achieve safety, we need to reinvest resources in restorative justice initiatives, employment programs, education, healthcare, and housing, especially in communities most harmed by criminalization, mass incarceration, and law enforcement violence. Join the discussion and let us know ways your community actively creates a safe environment for you and your neighbors! It's time we start defining our own communities.
