Statement Regarding Recent Violence

We are heartbroken and angry about the violence on our streets and our thoughts are with the Ramos & Marshall families. All of us want it to stop. We’re grateful for all of the information people have shared with the Police regarding recent incidents which significantly helps investigations. These injuries and losses of life will impact our community forever. We see our young people who want to make changes and we want to help them. On Wednesday, June 19, city staff will be meeting with youth organizers to plan a youth rally to come together, grieve and find our path forward together. If you are interested in supporting this effort, want to help plan or participate in a rally, please reach out to
