Community Engagement Division (CED) - January 2021

The CED has been busy scheduling and conducting several training sessions (Sexual Harassment, Civil Rights Law, etc.) for many diverse organizations throughout the state. Our Advocates and Leaders for Police and Community Trust (ALPACT) locations continue to hold community forums and meet consistently in their efforts to enhance police and community trust. CED has also continued its work for farmworkers in Sparta Township via our written expression of concern for a planned ordinance that on its face could be discriminatory toward farmworkers and their families. In addition, The City of Benton Harbor unanimously adopted a resolution to create a Citizens Review Board. MDCR was involved in the development and Director White sent a letter of support to the Benton Harbor City Commission encouraging them to support the Citizens Review Board creation.
