Across the nation and across Chicago, neighborhoods came together for a Nation Night Out Against Violence.

On the South Side, St Sabina’s Father Phleger led his congregation and community in a march to District 6 police headquarters with an anti-violence  message.

“Hopefully National Night Out should become a reminder we should be out every night,” he said.

Along with speaking out against violence, National Night Out gives communities a who may not be used to seeing  police as their partners against crime a chance to stand together.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel showed up to shake hands and thank people for coming out at Ellis Park in the Bronzville neighborhood.

“Neighbor that is how you bring safety to the streets of Chicago,” he said.
