TED Circle Discussion - "How police and the public can create safer neighborhoods together "

Tuesday, July 7, 2020

We all want to be safe, and our safety is intertwined, says Tracie Keesee, cofounder of the Center for Policing Equity. Sharing lessons she's learned from 25 years as a police officer, Keesee reflects on the public safety challenges faced by both the police and local neighborhoods, especially in the African American community, as well as the opportunities we all have to preserve dignity and guarantee justice. "We must move forward together. There's no more us versus them," Keesee says. How can our current social structures that appear to be fueled by individualism and pragmatism or perhaps, as the cynics contend, by sheer selfishness and greed, be repurposed with a focus on our shared humanity? In the July TED Circles we will discuss how the communications, technology, and corporate sectors can be redesigned to serve a higher purpose - the greater good. Join Lalita Subrahmanyan, RSVP Volunteer, who will lead the discussions.
