Unlikeliest of Partnerships?


Wednesday, August 24, 2011, 1:00pm to 2:00pm


Online Webinar

About the Webinar
This Webinar will examine the Urban League’s Neighborhoods@Work program, a three-year-old collaboration with the LAPD that has contributed to a significant drop in homicides in the Park Mesa Heights neighborhood in central Los Angeles. The audience should leave with an understanding of how these two partners, along with dozens of others, originally came together; the key elements that have contributed to their success; and tangible policy implications and lessons that they could apply to their own work.

The panel will feature:

  • Blair Taylor, CEO of the Los Angeles Urban League

  • Charlie Beck, Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department

Moderator: Christopher Stone, Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Professor of the Practice of Criminal Justice, Harvard Kennedy School

There will be ample time for audience Q&A.
