5. a city whose 2.7 million
residents are literally creating
safety thanks to THE VIOLENCE SOLUTIONS,
LARGE AND SMALL, arising FROM their
newfound ability to 
listen to and
learn from each

trustworthy

AS a TOP-DOWN and BOTTOM-UP

7. A city whose cost-effective,

violence are saving taxpayers billions
of the dollars once spent on failed
violence reduction efforts.


8. a unified city,
equally proud of
its citywide drive for
safety and the championship
drives of its beloved
pro sports teams.
