“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday, I found this notice tapped to the front door of my apartment building about an upcoming neighborhood community meeting addressing guns and violence. My question for the PoPville audience: Do community neighborhood meetings work or are they worth it in the overall scheme of ending neighborhood violence?

I’ve lived there over three years and every year around July 4th the expected fireworks, banging blast or gunshot sounds seems to be the norm for the week or few days that the holiday
surrounds, should I be following this as something signifcantly more? What does a meeting at the local library actually do other than meeting neighbors and the usual schmooze and networking?”
