S2E6: The Power of Sharing Stories [A Deeper Dive]
Making progress to understand and accept people of ALL cultures is becoming a life or death situation. Questions still linger as people wonder if they are safe in their communities, and whether the police officers they rely on will responsibly protect and serve. On this episode, we’re digging deeper into police perceptions with 2 powerful clips from last week’s episode, what we believe police need to do to better understand their communities, and why NOW is the time to have open & humanizing conversations between police and people of color.
We’re diving into:
- The emotions and questions Courthney and Emily have after the tragic mass shootings in their hometowns Atlanta, GA and Boulder, CO
- Courthney and Emily’s feelings on putting trust in the police
- How different public service jobs are valued by the community
- Courthney’s thoughts on police officers reconditioning their biases and reactions
- The power of sharing stories to change perceptions
- Reflecting on a clip from Katrina Miller’s “This Is [Not] Who We Are”
- Courthney’s perspective on “Fuck the Police” and “Defund the Police”
- And so much more!
