Daniel's Day Town Hall: Lindsay Acker and Colleen Kristich on The Public Good

Presenter(s): Anna Blatto
Date: September 13, 2022, 10:30-11 am

Join us on The Public Good. This week’s guests are Lindsay Acker, a master’s level conflict resolution specialist at Erie County Restorative Justice Coalition (ECREJC). She’s joined by PPG Community Researcher Colleen Kristich.
Lindsay and Colleen will be discussing alternatives to police in mental health response and the ECREJC’s campaign to bring community responder teams to Erie County, including what community responder teams look like, the kinds of calls they would respond to, and how they are held accountable to the communities they serve. They’ll also talk about implementing these teams into existing crisis response strategies, what’s been done so far, and next steps including Buffalo’s Daniel’s Day Town Hall on Tuesday 9/20/22.
