Through a massive outreach and listening campaign, Faith in Fresno leaders have developed a comprehensive vision for change focused on safe and decent housing, jobs and poverty, environmental justice, parks, and police accountability and gun violence. Recent highlights include ongoing organizing toward the creation of a mandatory Interior Inspection program to address the unsafe and unhealthy housing conditions that are impacting local families. Faith in Fresno leaders also gained the city’s commitment to adopt 21st Century Policing and have helped to oversee its gradual implementation, including implicit bias training for officers, and improved transparency through public access to data on police contact with students on school sites. They are currently working to create a stronger Office of Independent Review by giving the independent auditor subpoena powers, and the creation of a Community Advisory Board to create greater transparency and trust with the Police Department.
