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.
This presentation uses a combination of storytelling, data, and definitions of racial profiling, implicit bias, and systemic racism to discuss potential and real impacts on people of color living in our communities.
Presenters use real examples from Nextdoor and personal experiences to describe racial profiling and how neighbors can work to avoid profiling people of color when reporting crime.
There are two presenters - one person of color and one white person.
