al sharpton occupy the cornerStarting this Friday on Aug. 17, the Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network (NAN) will begin its “Occupy the Corners” initiative in New York City to help curb the rising tide of gun violence in the African American community.

SEE ALSO: It’s Time To Occupy The Corners
It is an initiative that Rev. Sharpton and NAN hope will be replicated across the nation.

A press release describes what “Occupy The Corners” is all about:

Each weekend, NAN and community activists, politicians, church leaders, and the like, will stand on corners in “hotspot” areas throughout the city, watching for any signs of violence, talking to residents, and take back the streets. OTC is not a patrol, says Sharpton, but an opportunity to show strong real-life neighborly support in our communities most plagued by gun violence. 

Each “Occupy The Corners” gathering will take place between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m Friday through Sunday. For a full listing of “Occupy The Corners,” please go to the National Action Network.
