National Night Out: The Art of Community-Led Policing



August 3rd, 2021, from 5-8 PM | #NationalNightOut


Denver, Colo (7/14/21) The Denver Dream Center, the Latino Cultural Arts Center, and Servicios de la Raza are teaming up with the Denver Police Department (DPD), District 1, to host an annual National Night Out (NNO) on August 3, 2021 from 5pm to 8pm.


We will be launching the design of a community mural project led by a young local artist! Join us at the 3100 block of Avondale drive (14th and Federal) for a night of celebration, featuring live art, entertainment, food, and more. The DPD Lowrider will be joined by local car clubs while the LCAC Mambo Orchestra, led by Maestro, Eric Trujillo, makes its debut!


National Night Out is a nation-wide initiative to build community among local neighborhoods and police departments. This timely collaboration contributes to conversations about community-led policing, while creating mentorship opportunities for young people in the cultural arts. Seasoned artists will support teenage artists to capture local histories & instill a sense of pride.


With the skyline as our backdrop, come out to celebrate and relax as we welcome a chill summer night in Denver.
