The People's Emergency Center CDC will use a series of outdoor workshops, public performances, and design-build events along Lancaster Avenue to foster dialogue around public safety and cultural identity.  This arts-centric approach to community organizing will allow PECCDC to create a community-led commercial corridor development process with the twin goals of equitable economic development and increased public safety that creates an inclusive and accessible community in which all residents can feel safe and can thrive in place.
