The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) continues its active dialogue with community partners and government agencies in building bridges of understanding and partnership. Ms. Washington, AHRC Executive Board member, has been attending and representing AHRC at the meetings for Advocates and Leaders for Police Community Trust (ALPACT), a forum of dialogue that was founded in Detroit in 1999 in response to community concerns of racial profiling by law enforcement. ALPACT is a monthly gathering of law enforcement agencies from city, county, state and federal offices across southeastern Michigan; as well as community leaders and advocates from local communities. ALPACT aims to build a strong partnership between law enforcement and local communities. “ALPACT is an incredible organization of sharing ideas to grow law enforcement and communities. It is a valuable group for AHRC to be a part of,” said Ms. Washington.
“We are grateful for Ms. Washington’s efforts in attending ALPACT meetings on behalf of the AHRC,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director and a founding member of ALPACT. “Ms. Washington’s presence as a board member and community leader truly enriches AHRC and ALPACT tremendously,” continued Hamad.
