Take Back the Block – Mayor’s Office

July 12

On Friday, July 12, 2024 COPA will be joining the Mayor’s Office of Community Safety and the People’s Plan for Community Safety to participate in a a new series of space activations to “Take Back the Block.” This Friday event at the Take Back the Block program from 12:30 – 1:30 PM in the Near West Side (in the vicinity of 1314 W. Hastings) and will help support the City of Chicago effort to demonstrate dedication to a better, stronger, and safer Chicago. Leveraging elements of a CPD “Operation Clean” and “Operation Wake-up,” we will bring together our infrastructure partners to complete maintenance requests and clean and green a block area, which we will couple with a short speaking program featuring the Mayor, CPD Superintendent, and local community and faith leaders to discuss our strategies for community safety and issue a call to action for residents. This work builds on many aspects of our Summer Safety Plan we announced in May and backs up the Mayor Johnson’s commitment for all Chicagoans to contribute to community safety.
