The course uses video, music, journaling, and group conversations to encourage participants to learn, share, discover their own biases and to create a more effective, community-responsive and fair public service agency.
Law Enforcement Consulting & Assistance
We work with law enforcement agencies to provide services critical to functioning in our country's current climate. We can help craft public statements, host community meetings, consult on listening sessions and building community trust. We can also provide a comprehensive assessment of your department or agency and help craft a plan for moving forward.
Community Engagement Night
One of the most predictive elements of a cooperative and engaged community is the opportunity for community members to share their story and have a voice. Community Nights and other community-facing programs provide this opportunity. Fogbreak’s facilitation approach is fundamentally based upon the principles of trust, respect, fairness and providing an opportunity to share in a nonjudgmental atmosphere.
Implicit Bias for Attorneys
We provide two distinct trainings: one for attorneys and one specialized for criminal justice attorneys. Both experiences provide details about how implicit bias impacts attorneys in particular, and focuses on specific techniques for reducing the impact of bias in our work. For criminal attorneys, the training pays special attention to addressing bias in client relationships and in jury trials.
