“The Beloved Community Initiative—a gathering of concerned citizens, including your neighbors and friends, is committed to educating ourselves and others and to building true partnerships within our community,” Farmington resident Cheryl Blau said. “We want to trust that our police departments feel the same and that begins with understanding the issues and concerns of the police and the citizens they serve. Both are equally important in building healthy and safe communities for everyone—residents and visitors.”

Participation with BCI, given all the fears around the election, could be especially helpful in assuring people that local police departments are here to serve all constituents equitably and fairly.
