This chilling video showing a woman robbed at her front door is just one of many incidents that have hit the Sacramento Asian community in the past few months.
To address the recent wave of attacks on members of the Asian American communities in South Sacramento, two public safety sessions have been scheduled. On October 19th, there will be two Public Safety Sessions at George Sims Community Center, translated into six languages:
Attendees will learn from law enforcement representatives how best to protect themselves against crime and, if a crime does occur, how to report it (it is critical to report all crimes to law enforcement).
When: October 19, 2016
Where: 6207 Logan Street in George Sim Community Center, near 65th Street and Lemon Hill Avenue
Session 1: 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm (Vietnamese, Hmong, Mien)
Session 2: 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm (Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish)
Both law enforcement agencies have been very responsive, and occurrences are on the decline.
Supervisor Kennedy is working with Council Member Eric Guerra, along with members of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and the Sacramento City Police Department, and the community to prevent further attacks.
If you know someone who may benefit from these meetings, please forward this communication.
