A Reflection on Systemic Change and Police Brutality from the Staff of IJPC – IJPC | Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center | Cincinnati Ohio

In the midst of repeated police brutality and in the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others, many leaders, especially those from the Black community, have been using their human ingenuity, their lived experiences, and personal insights to invent new ways of doing justice. They have radically transformed grief and righteous anger into forging new pathways for meeting basic human needs, protecting community safety, and ensuring peace and justice for all. Along with calls to create new systems of community safety have come calls to examine systems that aren’t working, most notably and most publicized has been the call to defund the police.
