Welcome Liz,

We're glad you joined us on Jamaica Plain's soundboard for voices and springboard for action!

As you've heard, there have been a bunch of muggings happening around lately and we could sure use your help to get the word out to arm our neighbors with safety tips. Please see our SafeWalk group - for details.

We also need help running the network, please check out the Community Advocates group for roles that need to be filled and also check out the JP Volunteers group to find out what other organization in JP need help with.

While the focus at the moment is about keep and eye for each other and prevent crime, about 95% of what happens on this network is that we do fun stuff with and for each other. Please read, post, reply, think about, share, attend, and create anything you wish - if something does not exist that you want START IT!

We'd also really appreciate it if you'd invited your JP friends and neighbors to join us. You can do that here - http://jamaicaplain.neighborsforneighbors.org/main/invitation/new
