Dine-Out For A Safer Atlanta
Atlanta restaurants and businesses will be participating in a Dine Out event on Wednesday, January 28th, 2009. Proceeds from this event will be donated to Crime Stoppers Atlanta and go directly to increasing the reward for information leading to the apprehension and arrest of the individuals involved in the murder of John Henderson at Standard Food & Spirits in Grant Park a few weeks ago.
Restaurants, bars, and other businesses that are interested in participating in the event should contact Rubi Cuautle. Participating businesses are encouraged to donate 20% of their profits from the evening of the Dine Out, however any amount donated will be accepted.
Atlantans Together Against Crime (ATAC) has been established in response to the wave of violent crime in Atlanta. Those interested may add their name to the mailing list to help raise awareness to the rise in violent crime as well as to take action with Atlanta’s lawmakers. Also, there is a Facebook group for sharing accounts of violent crime that effect those within the community, as well as posting updates on news, protests, and other tools to help bring awareness to this issue. The mailing list will be used to share information on gatherings, protests, and lobbying efforts to fight cutbacks.
