In this episode, I interview Elijah Manning. As Elijah became involved with social justice movements over the past few years, he realized he wanted to do more than just march in the streets. He saw that one of the areas with the greatest potential to make a difference is education, so he is founding his company Inclusive Education, LLC to make that change. People of color and women are completely entwined in our history, our literature, our science, our mathematics, so their contributions should be entwined in our curricula.

As a member of Groton, CT Representative Town Meeting, when I first learned of George Floyd’s murder, my first thought was to check with our own police department and find out if the problems that are endemic in some other departments existed here. In a number of conversation with Chief LJ Fusaro, I found that, while no institution is perfect, the culture of de-escalation and cooperation with community is strong, and the desire to improve is pronounced.

I wanted to give Chief Fusaro the opportunity to share the culture and policies of our local department to share in detail an example of a police department focused on working with rather than over their community.

In the interview, Chief Fusaro mentions Sir Robert Peel, and I believe it would valuable for all of us to become acquainted with the 9 Principles and 3 Core Ideas he laid out for good policing.

Wendy Updegrave is the founder of the East Lyme Community Forum. Most communities have a Facebook forum, or more than one, but most of us don’t know who runs them or how much work it takes to keep them running smoothly. We’ll talk to Wendy about what inspired her to launch the forum and the steps it takes to run a good forum. Turns out that it takes a village to run a forum.
