James (Agbara) Bryson CEO of New Millennium Institute wants to build trust between law enforcement and communities. Mr. Bryson is an African American who lived in public housing and understands that we all carry baggage full of assumptions, stereotypes and biases. Mr. Bryson wants to promote diversity and cultural competency by conducting training to help build police and community partnerships. And to teach how implicit biases create stereotypes and perceptions of bias-based policing that build barriers, racial and cultural baggage in community and police relationships. This training is an important tool in helping the police and community understand how implicit bias can affect them.
