When we decided to combat the racist profiling going on in our Nextdoor group, we began reaching out to our neighbors in a series of posts we call "Tips to avoid racial profiing on Nextdoor". We posted them monthly for about a year. We asked various partners in Oakland and across the country to share them as well.
We are revising and updating them for a rerun! Please be inspired to share them in your neighborhoods as well. We have two versions, one suitable to post on Nextdoor, and one that can be shared on other listservs and neighborhood networks.
(Hint: if you suspect some of your neighbors may react in an a way that could cause additional harm, you can always close the post to replies.)
Thank you for sharing!
