Enough is Enough!
Together Baton Rouge is hosting a city-wide, public safety house meeting campaign around violence.
East Baton Rouge parish has seen back-to-back years with record-breaking murder rates. In 2020, Baton Rouge saw 114 murders, followed by 149 murders in 2021. Both years were up significantly from the year 2019, which had 89. So far in 2022, there have been 45 murders (4/25 EBR Coroner’s office). EBR Parish is not unique in this trend as violence is reported to be up 30% throughout the country (Time Magazine).
Baton Rouge families don’t have to read the paper to know the impact of these realities, but they have yet to be at the center of finding solutions. The Enough is Enough: Public Safety House Meeting Campaign's purpose is to engage the community in order to listen to the stories about how violence has impacted their families and to identify solutions that we can organize around. It is time for us to make a stand! Join us and be a part of the solution!
