We Design Solutions to Problems Causing Violence in our Communities
Theater for Humanity’s work extends to creating policy solutions that can be implemented in local communities globally. We design actionable solutions to the most pressing issues facing community-police relations while also working on the issues within each respective community.
Black Safety & Protection
While law enforcement officers actively police criminal activity in black communities, they are not responsive to black victims of crime.
Intra-Communal Gun Violence
Gun violence has a stronghold on our communities and we are designing solutions for claiming our communities as places of peace.
Data Collection on Officer Involved Homicides
We need information to be effective. “The nation’s leading law enforcement agency [FBI] collects vast amounts of information on crime nationwide, but missing from this clearinghouse are statistics on where, how often, and under what circumstances police use deadly force. In fact, no one anywhere comprehensively tracks the most significant act police can do in the line of duty: take a life.” Las Vegas Review-Journal, November 28, 2011
Accountability & Police Brutality
While we have examples of recent cases of police brutality, these instances continue as there are no consequences to taking black life. We are designing solutions for accountable law enforcement.
hatred, discontent and general disease are destroying our freedom.
The repetition of incidents that breach trust between law enforcement and lay citizens, demonstrations of racial violence and senseless loss of life due to gun violence, demand that communities create their own solutions.
