“In light of the horrific violence in and around the Apodaca Park area, it’s important to have open conversations about them,” said Kasandra Gandara, City Council District 1 representative. “I invite the public to provide input and hear from our legislators, judicial representatives and community organizations as we work together to understand the root causes of such violence and how we can work together to address them.”

Gandara explained that the panel discussions are available to help community members better understand public safety, judicial and legal systems, and resources available to the community. The events also provide attendees an opportunity to share their views and concerns with invited officials and agency representatives.

These discussions will be held in person. People are encouraged to wear masks if they believe it is in their best interest. Anyone with questions about the series is encouraged to email the City of Las Cruces at clcengage@las-cruces.org or call 541-2192.
