Annistine Patrick

A self-described "organizer," Annistine Patrick is the person to see if you want anything done in the East End. That is one of the reasons police officers come by her house to hear what she thinks about some of their initiatives. Unlike many of her neighbors, she feels the police are on the right track and are making gains against the violence.
