It’s time to light up Flint, and you can be part of it.
This is a free event with food, entertainment and giveaways from the Michigan State Police and Wal-Mart.
The initiative empowers citizens to take action, report crime, and become involved in solving community issues. Law enforcement officers and community members walk through neighborhoods together to educate residents about community matters, strengthen relationships and take back control of the neighborhood.
This neighborhood effort is a collaborative approach from Flint Public Art Project and Light Up the City. It unites community organizations with law enforcement agencies to work toward the common goal of preventing crime by developing partnerships among residents, elected officials, healthcare organizations, educators, housing organizations, sinesses, and other stakeholders.
