In 2016, Susan and Charles spent three weeks in Birmingham working with our partner The National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice in collaboration with the John Jay College of Criminal Justice’s National Network for Safe Communities. Charles H. Tucker, a Co-Founder of Sustainable Equity, moderated Panel Discussion: Police-Community Reconciliation: Framework and Practice
“Description: For many, the sight of a police uniform evokes a feeling of safety and protection; for others, it triggers anxiety or mistrust. To change this dynamic, police agencies nationwide are striving to rebuild confidence with the communities that trust law enforcement the least. This panel highlights NNSC’s reconciliation framework that is being used by police and community members as part of the National Initiative for Building Community Trust & Justice, while also demonstrating that an honest acknowledgment of past harms does not undermine the difficult work police officers undertake, as they protect and serve.”
