Members of the 15th District CAPS office, various Austin churches and community groups have been “loitering” on several corners in Austin every Wednesday in June and July since 2010 in an attempt to reduce crime.
West side residents will meet at various corners in Austin at 6 p.m. tonight and every other Wednesday in June and July to take a stand against violence.
This year’s 100 Blocks & 100 Churches ended a month of prayer with a unity chain as West Side residents continue their fight against violence.
One Austin resident wants to know what’s next now that the 100 blocks, 100 churches project has ended.
More than 700 people gathered on 81 corners last Wednesday night. Organizers of the month-long, anti-crime event hope to beat the record tonight, when West Side residents gather again from 6 to 7 p.m.
