The Vulnerable Communities Team is gathering information and making friends. We are coordinating with Tenants and Workers United, the Alexandria NAACP, and with members of the Alexandria Human Rights Commission. Recent increases in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) activity is a particular concern.
We’ve learned about “data transparency,” and have requested that local police be required to share demographic data on stops and arrests. We’ve learned about “restorative justice,” a policy that focuses on keeping students in school instead of punishing them with suspension. We want students to learn instead of fall behind. These two examples are just the tip of the iceberg.
