In August of 2009, Richard Huie and a group of volunteers took a walk around Seattle's Chinatown in a community effort to address public safety issues facing the neighborhood. Exacerbated by language and cultural barriers, the greatest challenge facing the primarily immigrant resident population is the need to instill a sense of ownership. Through educational and training workshops, Huie modified the Neighborhood Watch model by creating the Block Walk to empower the community to take back their streets.
