About

RACIAL BIAS IN POLICING

More white Americans awoke to the deadly realities of racial bias in policing in the summer of 2020. But racial bias in policing is an issue as old as policing that intersects and connects to other facets of life in the United States, like racial disparities in discipline in schools (a.k.a. the school-to-prison pipeline) and neighborhood segregation.

Reflection

YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH POLICING

1. Write about your individual experiences with policing. 

2. Explore or imagine your family history with policing. Write about it.

3. Compare these experiences and histories with the podcast (and any additional readings and media you utilized). What have you learned?

Action Ideas

YOUR COMMUNITY AND POLICING

1. Research organization and community groups who provide civilian oversight and/or offer alternatives to policing. Find ways to get involved.

2. Does your local school have School Resource Officers? Inquire about this as well as data about discipline and in particular racial disparities in discipline.
