Join Genesee County Sheriff’s Department for its first annual “Walk With Us” day of service on Sunday, May 30, 2021!
This event is designed to strengthen the Flint and Greater Flint community. The Genesee County Sheriff’s Department started the “Walk with Us” journey May 30, 2020. Sheriff Christopher R. Swanson experienced a defining moment in Flint Township, where an angry crowd had gathered to protest police brutality following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN a few days earlier.
When confronting the protesters, Swanson asked, “What do you need us to do?” They replied, “Walk with us.” Swanson and the law enforcement officers at the scene removed their helmets and riot gear, then walked in solidarity with the protesters. “In that moment, hate became hope,” Swanson said at the time. “It led to a positive outcome of hope and Flint became a beacon of light.”
And it’s an honor for them to host the first annual “Walk with Us” day of service. They are looking for volunteers to join their movement in bringing positive change to Genesee County communities. During the day of service, they will be working on 20-plus projects across the county and the city of Flint.
Come and enjoy some food, service, and an amazing day of unity to show the world how Flint can be an example of great positive change!
