Government can be a powerful force for equity. A critical player in that transformation is local government. With its substantial authority and influence over significant policies, services and resources, government can play a vital role in dramatically improving outcomes for all citizens.
“Defund the Police” is currently being voiced by many American’s across the country. And many US cities are listening to their constituents and taking action. The challenge is, what does “Defund the Police” really mean and how can city leaders responsibly respond and take action to address demand and equity.
Through the deep understanding of every program your organization provides, and the development of critical program level data, your local gov can incorporate important equity measures into every program. And through our case studies, you will learn how Denver, Colorado and Tacoma, Washington are achieving equity gains. And how Salem, Oregon is utilizing program inventory and data to begin to understand how police resources are allocated within the city, down to the program and service level, as the city and citizens begin to reimagine police services.
