Grassroots Effort to Address Crime in Jackson

Communities in Jackson, Mississippi are coming together to tackle the rising crime rates in the city.

Men Who Care About Jackson, a local organization, will be hosting a prayer breakfast called “Stop the Bleeding and Heal the City” to address the pressing issue of crime.

Recent crime data has revealed that for the second consecutive year in 2022, Jackson led the nation in per capita homicide rates among cities with populations greater than 100,000.

With this event, the organizers aim to stop the violence, explore solutions, and promote healing within the city.

Pastor Joseph White of Restoration Community Church, one of the key organizers, emphasizes that the primary goal of the event is to unite the community and work towards reducing crime.

He states, “What we see is that anywhere from 60 to 70, 80% of violent crime reduction happens.

But it only happens when people put their egos aside and work for a common agenda.

It’s not about promoting me.

It’s not about promoting my church.

It’s about the city and the people of this city.

And it can be done.

And the people deserve no less.

And this is not a political statement, it’s reality.

We can do this if we open ourselves to the public.”

The prayer breakfast will take place this Saturday from 9 a.m.

to 12 p.m.

at the Mississippi E-Center.

Representatives from the Jackson Police Department, Hinds County Sheriff’s Office, and Capitol Police Department will also participate in the event, highlighting the collaborative effort between law enforcement and the community.

The event is open to the public, and attendees are encouraged to RSVP.
