Our Police, Ourselves [davisvanguard.org]

Alicia Doktor ·
Davis, CA Mayor (and ACN member), Robb Davis writes about attending a recent trauma-informed law enforcement forum.

UpStander Carnival on October 20 2018 at Davis Central Park 401 C street At some time, every kid becomes a bystander — someone who witnesses bullying but doesn’t get involved out of fear or lack of knowing what to do. But that child can be an “Upstander” instead — the person who knows what’s happening is wrong and does something to make things right. It takes courage to speak up on someone’s behalf. The Davis Phoenix Coalition will host a free Upstander Carnival for pre-K through...
