Concerned Citizens for Justice - Chico
Who We Are
Mission. To build responsive, transparent and compassionate partnerships between law enforcement / first responders and the community that they serve, based on mutual trust and respect.
Objectives. Promote training that provides law enforcement / first responders with deep preparedness for resolving challenging situations, devoid of implicit bias, and utilizing de-escalation alternatives. We endeavor to promote a culture that values the dignity of all citizens and preserves human life. To institutionalize these intentions through the establishment of a coalition of law enforcement/ citizens/ community groups and the local government.
Communication Guidelines. We are committed to nonviolent approaches to our communication and believe that is essential to our goal of building a more peaceful community. We believe that individual expression without judgment and active listening are crucial in our approach to the work ahead of us. We invite community members who are interested in promoting our mission and observing our communication guidelines to join us.
