 Nationally, there is a great need to strengthen positive relations between African-Americans, Latinos and other people of color with the institutions entrusted to advance, educate, nurture, protect and serve all citizens.  Building on the success of the 2016 National Summit, this Summit will provide communities with tools to create a culture of understanding and respect in their schools and neighborhoods.  By engaging educational leaders, law enforcement personnel, community members and private and public officials, community teams will build upon their strengths and create a plan for improving relationships between schools, law enforcement and the communities that they serve.

The Summit Planning Committee will be accepting proposals for concurrent sessions through March 15, 2017.  Submit your best practices today!
