LEARN 2 LIVE
A NATIONAL SOCIAL JUSTICE & COMMUNITY POLICING INITIATIVE
EDUCATING & TRAINING A NATION OF YOUTH - PRESERVING GENERATIONS
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. has launched a national initiative entitled, “Learn 2 Live,” a collaborative effort with the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) to formally address one of the most critical issues affecting people of color in the United States. Incidents of racial profiling, a lack of comprehensive policing policies, and the increasing frequency of tragic outcomes between law enforcement and persons of color have produced an environment of anger and frustration, widening the trust gap between police and communities of color. In fact, the subject of policing in African-American communities is arguably the largest civil rights issue of our current generation. While the road to equity in social justice and the process of “bridge building” is long, complicated and requires a multi-pronged course of action, Kappa Alpha Psi and NOBLE are committed to the journey. This initiative is the first step, featuring a series of 100 community forums nationwide to provide information, education and training to prepare the youth in communities of color for the law enforcement encounters that they have a statistically high probability of experiencing.
