National Action Network (NAN) and Rev. Al Sharpton, responding to the recent rash of shootings that have plagued the country are entering into week two of “Occupy the Corners” this Friday, August 17th for four consecutive weekends from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. Each weekend, NAN and community activists, politicians, church leaders, and the like, will stand on corners in “hotspot” areas throughout the city, watching for any signs of violence, talking to residents, and take back the streets. OTC is not a patrol, says Sharpton, but an opportunity to show strong real-life neighborly support in our communities most plagued by gun violence.
