Social entrepreneurs are known for finding solutions to society’s problems. What is the problem that you are addressing and what is your solution?

CPE serves America’s most vulnerable communities by creating a roadmap for redesigning public safety and producing analysis to fight racial bias, while identifying and reducing the causes of racial disparities in public safety. CPE also advocates for systemic and meaningful change to define public safety as outlined by the community. Data collected and collated from the community is used to produce measurements of crime and justice to empower local leaders to hold themselves accountable to the principles of equal justice under the law and fair treatment of everyone.
