Congratulations to our ED, Sheba Williams for joining Mayor Stoney’s Task Force on Reimagining Public Safety

After careful consideration and consultation with the community that we serve, our Executive Director, Sheba Williams, has accepted a position on Mayor Levar Stoney's Reimagining Public Safety Task Force. The decision to join was not taken lightly, as our work over the past 5 years has been directly related to public safety and justice work for those directly impacted by overpolicing, oversentencing, overcharging and mass incarceration. There was some opposition to joining the task force but there was much more support from those we serve. Many people that we serve are on the receiving end of injustice, and that is where our commitment as an organization lies. We will continue to welcome input from the community that we serve.
