(Police Accountability, Transparency & Violence Prevention)
ACT works on increasing transparency and accountability in both the Sacramento (City) Police Department and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, and on addressing implicit bias in law enforcement. We are deeply engaged in developing a partnership table on police accountability, transparency and reform in the Sacramento using the H.E.A.T. framework of Hiring practices, Equipment, Accountability measures and Training. We also support faith leaders to build relationships between law enforcement and community.
We work with leaders and residents on violence reduction efforts in impacted neighborhoods through advocating for preventive services, leading night walks and training faith leaders to mediate in community spaces.
Following the killing of Stephon Clark in March 2018, ACT has worked to organize healing circles and healing spaces for community.
