Proactive & Intentional Community & Police Engagement
September 23 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Miami Center for Racial Justice is hosting “#ItStartsWithMeMiami,” a community form and workshop to bring together the community and law enforcement for meaningful conversation. This program focuses on the power of finding solutions to the concerns between the community & police through proactive and intentional interaction with a historical context in addition to recruitment for careers in policing. Historical storytelling combined with personal testimonies often provide more insight and understanding for the many experiences of members in a community.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Gulfport Public Library.
