Community Led Public Health and Safety Accelerator
We expand the capacity of community-led public health and safety models to scale thriving Black, Brown, Indigenous and systems impacted communities.
Community-led public health and safety must be the cornerstone of Criminal Justice and Police Reform. It creates better impacts and budget outcomes while also catalyzing a new industry with systems impacted communities at its core to strengthen their economies.
But community-led initiatives lack access to capital and business development support to come to the scale needed for them to thrive. Furthermore, without needed jobs, ownership opportunities, and housing and infrastructure investments, they will not be able to reach their greatest impacts. As long overdue investment commitments are being made to Black, Brown, Indigenous, and frontline communities and climate infrastructure, an intentional pipeline of staged business development support and more efficient, aggregated deployment of capital is required to ensure communities are prepared to absorb scaled investment and take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity.
