Safer Together; "Jacksonville Today"; San Marco; Get Smart About Credit Day
Protesters plan to organize at City Hall before next week’s City Council meeting in response to Safer Together falling apart this week. The committee sought to improve relations between law enforcement and the community they serve.
Councilmember Michael Boylan resigned as vice-chair of Safer Together after saying he did not believe activists and police could ever come together. Council President Sam Newby then dissolved the committee, disappointing activists who have been pushing for police reform in Jacksonville.
WJCT Public Media received a $500,000 grant from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation. That, along with support from VyStar, Florida Blue, the Community Foundation, and individual donors, contributed to the launch of Jacksonville Today. It is a free newsletter you can receive each day in your inbox, keeping you informed.
