Community Frontline was formed by a group of friends in 2016 in the aftermath of a violent summer that included the murders of Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, and other unarmed black men, as well as five Dallas police officers. We wanted to be a part of the solution and to initiate a long-term commitment to racial justice and healing.
We focus on four pillars:
We focus on four pillars: (1) racial justice and solidarity, (2) police/community relations and accountability, (3) mentoring and education, and (4) community beautification and development.
1. Racial Justice and Solidarity - Community Frontline hopes to eliminate fear and misunderstanding by cultivating spaces where people from various racial backgrounds can better get to know one another.
2. Police/Community Relations and Accountability - Community Frontline’s Police/Community relations efforts are focused on relationship building, accountability, and mediation to foster understanding.
3. Mentoring and Education - Community Frontline’s Educational and Mentorship pillar service focuses on the importance of classroom learning and works to ensure that there is aid and accountability at all levels of the educational system.
4. Community Beautification and Development - City Beautification is at the heart of Community Frontline’s actionable service endeavors. City Beautification is about making our shared spaces better for all persons in our city.
We are fundraising to sustain and scale the work we are doing in the community. We believe strong communities build a strong city. Will you join us in strengthening our communities?
