Kroc IPJ Meets With San Diego Religious Leaders in Preparation for January Event

Monday, November 27, 2017

Building Trust Consultation Meeting

The Kroc School's Institute for Peace and Justice (Kroc IPJ) Executive Director Andrew Blum and Program Officer Daniel Orth met with religious leaders from around San Diego this November to seek feedback on the Building Trust Partnership Handbook and Website launching in the New Year.

The Kroc IPJ, along with the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego and the San Diego Organizing Project have created Building Trust: A Partnership of Clergy, Communities and Police. The vision of the Building Trust Partnership is to ensure that if a religious leader, of any faith, anywhere in San Diego County, wants to work on improving police-community relations, she or he can access the knowledge, resources, and support necessary to do so. In the process, the Building Trust Partnership is creating a cohort of San Diego clergy committed to working together to restore and strengthen trust between our police and communities. 

Based on more than 80 conversations with clergy, law enforcement and community members across San Diego, the Kroc IPJ has developed a handbook and website to help San Diego religious leaders  who seek to build trust between police and communities understand what role they can play and how they can do so. The November consultation meeting was an opportunity for San Diego religious leaders to provide feedback to strengthen the handbook and website before their official release. 

The Building Trust Partnership Launch Event will take place on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 in the Peace & Justice Theatre at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Please stay tuned for more details on the launch event.
