This week, Sterling discusses the upcoming Building Bridges Basketball Tournament with Founding Organizer, Zimbabwe Davies. Building Bridges Basketball was created to help bridge the gap between community members and police officers through basketball with the intentions of improving community relations. They also focus on having a dialogue at community forums and work towards solution-based ideas that will best serve public safety in Bay Area communities. Their hope is to encourage the community members and police to help create change by working together, forming solutions and having compassion and empathy that will impact the next generation of youth.
Building Bridges will be held on Sunday July 28th from 3pm – 6pm at Soldiertown: 31 4th street Oakland, Ca.
