Puyallup, Wash. – Safe Streets, a Pierce County non-profit organization, invites the entire community together for an educational event focused on the needs and assets of Tacoma and unincorporated Pierce County residents. On November 3, both youth and adult residents are invited to attend the event to build skills, knowledge, and connections to improve our communities. This is the sixth annual conference and this year the focus is on building your dream Pierce County.
Workshops will include community-oriented policing, safe routes to schools, peer-to-peer learning, building engagement, Pierce County Centers and Corridors, homelessness, opioid addiction, and more. A Resource Fair will also help connect people to service providers and local community groups.
