South side Tucson community action meeting

Posted: Updated:

Ask anyone in Tucson about the south side, and you might hear something about crime and violence. Many southsiders call that perception unfair. Now, people in the Sunnyside neighborhood want to do something about it.

At Sunnyside High School, about 300 people attended a town hall meeting to increase the peace in their neighborhood. There's a negative perception that exists about the south side, and many of the people here want to make a change for the better.
