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.
"In this fictive world, black female emotional pain can be exposed and revealed. It can be given voice: this is a vital and essential stage of freedom struggle, but it does not bring exploitation and domination to an end." -Bell Hooks (Bell Hooks Institute Blog)
