Community Safety and Justice

While visioning and building an equitable and just system that keeps all communities safe, PolicyLink also works to reduce the harm of our current policing system, including shifting the narrative about policing, limiting the power of police unions to weaken public safety, and, through the Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, supporting campaigns to defund the police, limiting use of force, increasing accountability, and making police racial profiling and misconduct records more transparent in California.

Our approaches to this work through arts, cultures, and equitable development included both support for a grassroots, community-based arts and cultural organizations, and direct commissioning of artists and cultural strategists.
