Trayvon Martin Peace Monitors Credited with Preventing Reoccurrence of Crenshaw District Disturbances Tuesday Night

The Peace Monitors Are a Model for Future Violence Prevention

 

The team of Trayvon Martin Peace Monitors formed by Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and other civil rights leaders were credited by officials with playing a key part in preventing a reoccurrence of the disturbances that rocked the Crenshaw District Monday night. The Peace Monitors were on the streets at all potential trouble spots on Crenshaw Tuesday night and not one single disturbance or act of violence occurred.

“The Trayvon Martin Peace Monitors showed that civil rights leaders and concerned citizens in cooperation with city officials and the LAPD can stop civil disturbances in Los Angeles,” says Hutchinson, “Their actions serve as a model for community action in preventing future potential acts of civil unrest in Los Angeles.”
