Skid Row Neighborhood Watch Walk (organized by the CCEA, taken from CCEA’s website: http://centralcityeast.org/About_SkidRow.tpl)
First Wednesday of the month @ 6 PM
The walk begins and ends at the courtyard of the Midnight Mission at 601 S. San Pedro St. The courtyard entrance faces 6th St.
We assemble at 6 and depart at approximately 6:15.
All people who live Downtown, and especially Skid Row residents, deserve a crime-free, gang-free, drug-free and empowered community to call their own.
Regardless of where you live, work or visit Downtown, please come and make a difference. We need you to stand strong with us as we call for an improved quality of life in Skid Row.
Details: Secure parking is available in the Midnight Mission’s underground parking structure. The entrance is on San Pedro St. just south of 6th St.
Please tell the parking attendant that you are there for the Neighborhood Walk.
The walk will cover approximately 10-12 blocks. Comfortable shoes are strongly recommended.
Several LAPD officers from Central Division as well as our BID security officers will accompany us on our walk.
TV and/or print media may accompany us on our walks.
