Yesterday the Greenbelt Community Relations Advisory Board and the Greenbelt City Police Department held a forum to to encourage listening and dialogue.   This was the first of a series of conversations to foster a respectful, safe and fair community.

I got a chance to meet neighbors and we collectively worked on being “One Greenbelt”.  Residents shared their experiences and suggestions for improving relations with the police department.  Thomas Kemp, Acting Police Chief said “We are here to LISTEN”.

Take a look at my sketchnotes below, with the takeaways I heard during this session.
