Bridge the Gap: Cards For Cops
With everything that has been going on between our communities & cops, The Truth Urban Theater Group has been looking for alternative positive action that can aid in repairing the beaten & broken relationship between law enforcement & civilians. Recently we took to the streets of New York City with "Thank You Cards" (made by children in our community) to give to police officers to show our support & love for the officers who don't fit the criteria of a "bad cop". While this may be small, we felt it a necessary step towards building trust & humility between civilians & ALL police officers. We believe that this #CardsForCops movement can be a catalyst that will spark peace on the streets & reform in the conduct of our law enforcement.
Our #CardsForCops movement was created by the Truth UTG President Shadrack Boakye. After making the cards with young students on Long Island, Shadrack and 3 other individuals (Melee, Toni & Jewlz) associated with The Truth decided to walk the streets of NYC to give out the cards to officers. On 12/14/14 (the day after the Millions March) The Truth troop gave out over 50 cards to NYC police officers. All of the officers seemed highly surprised but extremely grateful when they received their custom made thank you cards.
We would like #CardsForCops to become a movement of the masses. We believe this movement can help get rid of the stigma & the ignorance that many people have against cops as well as the stereotypes & prejudice that some cops have against civilians. Help us change and rearrange minds of everyone to think & act in a more positive light. With your help we can promote positive interactions between civilians & law enforcement.
Any support would mean a lot to this movement.
