JPD holding community event July 20th to stand against violence and celebrate diversity

    From 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., free hot dogs will be served at Marine Park.

    In the wake of various violent encounters reported nationwide, the Juneau Police Department is holding a special community gathering to take a symbolic stance against violence and discrimination.

    JPD Lt. Kris Sell provided details on the event.

    According to Sell, members of the Juneau Police Department and individuals across the community have been found in a tough place lately, horrified by the violence happening across the country and the world.

    JPD and their community partners are asking the residents of Juneau to come out to Marine Park on July 20th, 2016 to be counted as a person against violence, discrimination, and hate.

    JPD will provide free hot dogs, name tags to celebrate in our diversity, and white boards to tell the world how we feel about what has been happening in our society and abroad.

    The gathering is in Marine Park July 20th, 2016, from 10:30 in the morning to 6:00 in the evening. If you would like to support this gathering, please bring hotdogs, buns, and condiments to the park. JPD will provide some supplies to get the event started along with a grill and people to cook the hotdogs.
