Why: March is Social Work Awareness Month, and this year's theme is #ElevateSocialWork, and we would like to highlight USC's Dworak-Peck School of Social Work partnership with law enforcement departments throughout Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties to place MSW graduate students to put theory into practice and assist in promoting trauma-informed practice within police departments and reduce biased-based policing.
Who: Panel discussion of experts engaged in social work practice and law enforcement committed to reducing community violence. Currently, we have the commitment of Shamell Bell, a Black Lives Matter co-founder, and film consultant to 'The Hate U Give.' Professor Rosemary Alamo, Director of the Social Work and Law Enforcement Initiative at USC Dworak-Peck. Others invited: Hannah Stribling, MSW, Grant Writer at Long Beach Health and Human Services. Hannah received $500k grant from BSCC to create a law enforcement academy and provide implicit bias training, and engage in community dialogue in reducing community violence.
What: The film ‘The Hate U Give’ provides a glimpse of the complexity of biased-based policing in communities of color.
