About This Event

H.E.A.T. Symposium 2017: Love & Justice

"Imagining a table large enough for everyone's suffering."


In a society where 'othering' one another (the 'us verses them' narrative) is becoming common, we are all being presented with choices around how we are going to make decisions about safety. Daily, we are being offered anecdotes that 'we are safer when we are separated from one another'. This directly impacts how we relate to one another. There has been deep pain and trauma in our communities for decades- caused by law enforcement. Mistrust and fear of law enforcement continues to be reinforced, through daily images and footage of unarmed people of color being brutalized and shot by police. The pain is also felt by law enforcement, with officer suicide rates being at an all time high. Can we imagine a table that is large enough for everyone's suffering- both community and police?

On June 2-3, in Fresno, California, we plan to build on our commitment to heal and build trust through reform, by reflecting on strategies that Leaders have taken to try and transform the public safety system in their local context. Plenary and breakout sessions, group discussion and provocative panel sessions will share thought leadership and best practices. We're inviting you to participate and bring community leaders and partners- especially those most impacted by the pain.Your voice is absolutely necessary, in order to rebuild a public safety system that works for everyone. Please join us for the second statewide H.E.A.T. Symposium!
