Community Conversations: Empower Surrey: Keeping Kids out of Gang Life

Community Conversations is back, and we are so excited to bring you a whole new set of topics to discuss over the next few months!

In this Community Conversations, we partner up with Community Safety Coordinator Simran Sidhu and Surrey Anti-Gang Family Empowerment (SAFE) Program Coordinator Harmeet Shergill on resources to help parents keep their kids out of gangs. How can parents communicate with their kids and start a conversation about these issues at an early age? Why do gangs target more vulnerable individuals? All these issues and more will be brought up at the event. Register TODAY and join us on Wednesday, October 27, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm to get in on the conversation.

The Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association is honoured to have Harmeet Shergill and Simran Sidhu as our guest speakers. Harmeet has been working with the City of Surrey for over 9 years and is currently working in the Community Safety section as the Surrey Anti Gang Family Empowerment Coordinator. She really enjoys supporting a unique program that reduces the risk of gang / criminal involvement. Simran also works at the City of Surrey as a Community Safety Coordinator, specializing in Marketing and Communications. She’s been with the City for over a year, and within that time, she has launched programs like “#BlockEmDontShareEm- for PinkShirt Day, along with assisting in building the Empower Surrey website. She appreciates working with a great team that believes safety is a shared responsibility.

Through a presentation, following a Q&A, and ending off with a facilitated discussion, we will learn about all the ways that you can keep your children safe by finding ways to effectively communicate with them.
