Existing Models and Programs

For Los Angeles to move towards a space of true public safety, we must be led and informed by those who have been most affected by the fatal flaws in the current systems. 

We can look to existing models as a starting point. Drawing on the expertise of leaders like Aqeela Sherrills, programs like Advance Peace and the Stockton Trauma Recovery Center, and trauma-informed school models like UCSF Hearts and TISLC in New Orleans, we can begin to develop our own community-based approaches to public safety.
