Safe and Sober Summer Water Give-away July 2018

Brothers Rodney Brooks (left), and Jeff Robertson (right).

On July 08, 2018, the Brothers of The Mighty Tau Tau Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. were asked by the Southern California Cease Fire Committee to support a “Community Service Project”. This project is commonly referred to as “Safe and Sober Summer Water Give-away”. During this event the Brothers donated and passed out bottles of water at the corner of Crenshaw and Manchester Bls. This event was coordinated by Brother Keith Parker.

The Safe & Sober Summer Campaign is held every Sunday in the month of July at different gang infested communities throughout the Greater Los Angeles Area.

The Safe & Sober campaign is intended to promote a safe & sober summer because statistics showed a spike in crime and gang related activities in the warm summer months and over 85% of all violent crimes are committed while under the influence of alcohol and or drugs.

The idea behind the campaign is that by giving a bottle of cold water, we may divert potential alcohol induced violent behavior and by partnering with Southern California Cease Fire Committee, together we can help to save lives.
