We are a group of Dimond neighbors who meet to address ways for our community to avoid racial profiling in our crime prevention efforts. We meet to discuss, educate and challenge ourselves and each other about the unconscious bias and assumptions about race, combined with fear of crime, which is making our neighborhood feel intolerable to the people of color who live, work and visit here.
“The trouble is that once you see it, you can't unsee it. And once you've seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There's no innocence. Either way, you're accountable.”
