Bridging the Divide: African-American Communities and Law Enforcement

ROLC, in collaboration with Met Congregations United in St. Louis, is launching an ambitious effort to investigate the underlying issues perpetuating the deep chasm between African-American communities and law enforcement, in order to identify the most effective solutions. This empirically rigorous, community-based participatory research effort will inform the reform efforts of leaders on both sides of the police-community divide.  ROLC seeks to expand this effort to other U.S. cities.
