INDIANAPOLIS - In response to the possibly record-setting violence Indianapolis has seen this year, those who love the Circle City are stepping up to effect change.
We’ve told the stories. Some of you are arming yourselves against possible crime in your own home. Some are pushing for better mentorship of the city’s youngest and most impressionable citizens. And some are taking other avenues to keep their families safe, such as bringing a furry (but potentially deadly) new member into their homes.
That’s why RTV6 and theINDYchannel.com are bringing you as many stories as we can focused on what you are doing to make change, and possibly better the community. We will also focus on local officials’ response to issues surrounding the uptick in homicides and other violent crime.
We’re all in this together.
Our initiative? “Our Streets. Our Stories.”
If you know of someone in your neighborhood who’s taking a unique approach to their response to crime, we want to help tell their story.
If you know of a group that is taking a different tack in fostering a positive environment, we want to hear about it.
We can all work together to make Indianapolis safer. We are ready to help tell the story of this city’s recovery.
