LISC has supported collaboration between police and residents in high crime areas for years, including in many communities of color where mutual distrust runs deep. Partnership is a tall order unless all sides show a willingness to get to know each other as people—people who want to go home safe to their families at the end of the day. In an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle, Rev. Ben McBride describes this critical work in Oakland, CA, now expanding to other cities. And he’ll share more with LISC partners at our National Leadership Conference in November.
