Call to Action - Police Reform and Racial Justice
We must re-imagine public safety and devote more resources to behavioral health care, housing, and support for youth and community organizations. Armed officers should not have to serve every function and component of our public safety, especially the timely and compassionate responses to people suffering from mental health crisis.I need your inspiration and support in this effort, so please get in touch to share your thoughts and suggestions. In the meanwhile, rest assured that we’re getting to work on these critical issues!
