New Blue Project
Andy Saunders and Brittany Nestor, with COO, Jon Saunders ’14BUS
Social justice and public safety
What is the social or environmental issue being addressed?
The broken relationship between low-income communities and law enforcement requires leadership, a change in mindset, and diversity. Through reformed recruitment and revised training, New Blue identifies, trains, and develops a diverse coalition of leaders who shape police policy and culture through system-level leadership.
There is not an organization that strings diversity recruitment, revised training, and leadership development all together in a cohort model. New Blue Project is the organization to lead the way with a three-pronged approach:
- Identify and train diverse leaders who represent the communities they serve.
- Advance leadership and guide socialization by placing our recruits in agencies that value community-oriented policing practices.
- Support career trajectories and leadership with New Blue Project ambassadors and stewards this mission.
