The “Rally to Protect our Neighborhoods” will take place Saturday, April 30 from 12-2pm at the BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown.
The event will be hosted by Councilmember Craig Rice
(District 2), Councilmember Sidney Katz (District 3) and
Greg Wims of the Upcounty Regional Services Center.
The event is being run in conjunction with the ‘Justice for Jai’lyn Rally’, in honor of 17-year-old Jai’lyn Jones, who was murdered in Germantown back in January.
Jai’lyn was a Germantown resident and a senior at Northwest High School. His body was found brutally stabbed and mutilated. As of today, no arrests have been made and the case remains active.
According to the event’s flyer, “All community members are invited to join the Upcounty Regional Services Center and Montgomery County Councilmembers Craig Rice and Sidney Katz to discuss enhancing public safety through building community partnerships.”
Community resources will be available at the event.
