Building Trust Among Police and Racially Diverse Communities (Follow-up Conversation to Opening General Session)

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Mayor Bell of Birmingham and racial equity content expert Julie Nelson will serve as a panel of experts to facilitate discussion with local elected officials about programs, policies, practices that are working in their communities to rebuild trust between police and communities of color.

To advance the discussion, attendees at the first general session will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire. The questionnaire will focus on:

  • What is your city doing to build trust between communities of color and law enforcement?
  • How is this connected to any broader city efforts on racial equity?
  • What is the impact so far?
  • Lessons learned? Key challenges?

The responses will be collected by NLC staff at the end of the first general session.  The panel will then select several responses to explore in greater detail during the workshop and engage with the audience to determine if these activities can help other cities that are working to build trust among police and racially diverse communities.
