The annual National Night Out (NNO) is back in the United States for the 39th year since 1984.

The event is fun and educational, in line with social media platform Gan Jing World's idea of creating positive and healthy content for neighborhoods, a spokesman for the company told The Epoch Times.

Gan Jing World, a new platform based in the United States, has invited Americans to celebrate the event with photos, videos, and shorts for “neighborhood pride” and “community partnership.”

NNO falls on the first Tuesday of August and aims to strengthen police–community ties and enhance safety.

Since it was launched, the event has been a success, involving Americans from across the country taking part in the event, with the first NNO having 2.5 million neighbors participating across 400 communities in 23 states.

Gan Jing World, the family-friendly and fast-growing social media platform, has successfully hosted a series of online events, including #GJWBabies, #MealTimeTogether, #GJWBestDad, #GJWMothersDay, #GJWDance, and many more.

The new platform is working with American neighbor and law enforcement departments to celebrate the national event against crime, building up a stronger community bond, and expressing appreciation for the year's hard work of U.S. law enforcement officers for keeping American families safe.

"We support the 'National Night Out Against Crime' campaign to strengthen community safety and bring positive, inspiring impact to our society," said Nick Janicki, director of media relations at the Ganjingworld Corporation. "Gan Jing World is a family-friendly, healthy, and safe platform built for people of all ages, from all walks of life. It's free from violence, crime, pornography, and harm."

The name “Gan Jing World” comes from Chinese, meaning “clean world” in English. Founded by Chinese dissidents who fled communist China, the company seeks to provide a new form of “clean” social media, with the goal of creating a digital town square that is family-friendly.

Participants can upload photos and videos of the events at their local police station on Aug. 1 to Gan Jing World’s tag page, with hashtags “#NNO2023” or “#NameofyourcityNNO2023.” For instance, if you are in New York, you can upload your photos and videos using #NYCNNO2023.

“On the first Tuesday in August (Texas and select areas to celebrate on the first Tuesday in October), millions of neighbors across thousands of communities in all fifty states, U.S. territories, and military bases worldwide actively participate in National Night Out,” says Gan Jing World on its website.

Locally in New York, the New York City Police Department (NYPD), the nation's largest law enforcement department, invites neighborhoods to join them for “barbecue, bounce houses, face painting, food, and fun” on NNO at more than 70 locations citywide.

Gan Jing World is joining the NYPD this year at six of the NYPD's event booths.

On Aug. 1, Gan Jing World will be at the following NYPD precincts' NNO booths to provide real-time information to the public about the use of this campaign tag page on the platform, and to join the community in having a great and safe day:
