On Thursday, March 14, from 6:30 -8:30 PM, the Escondido Gang Reduction Intervention Prevention (EGRIP) will be holding a Community Meeting at Escondido High School in the Performing Arts Center. Escondido High School is located at 1535 N. Broadway.
EGRIP has arranged for guest speakers who have first-hand knowledge and experiences that they will share with the audience regarding gang culture and how it impacts our families and our community. They will talk about the challenges our kids and families face from a perspective of someone who has experienced it themselves.
The evening is also dedicated to getting the audience involved through questions and discussion. EGRIP will have a panel of experts to answer and address the questions that are on the minds of families, youth, and the community.
EGRIP is trying to build safer communities and give our residents help, information, and tools so they can better respond to the challenges we all face with gangs. Among the many areas that will be discussed are:
- Prevention Services
- Family Resources
- Law Enforcement Perspective
- Intervention Strategies
Childcare and translation will be provided. This is a free event.
