Building Bridges of Understanding in Our Communities came together in September 2016, at a time of heightened tensions in our country and polarizing political rhetoric. We explored bias as both a bridge and a barrier to maintaining a strong, safe, and caring community. Our efforts strengthened the trust between each other and the communities we serve.

The following year’s 2017 summit continued to build bridges and deepen our understanding of the role implicit bias plays in community safety. As leaders of public safety and diverse civil society organizations, our commitment to this creates hope and our actions build trust.

This year, the summit is sharing tangible signs of change in our communities and calling on attendees to press on further.
