Leaders from the Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles School Police, California Highway Patrol and Los Angeles Airport Police walked alongside local students on Wednesday, Feb. 1, striding for togetherness during the third annual Good Trouble Walk & Cultural Sensitivity Summit.

Building Blue Bridges  founder Daphne Bradford hosted the event, which celebrated Black History Month walk and called for “All Hands on DECC (De-escalation, Education, Communication, Collaboration) with Public Safety.”

“Young people have always been the catalyst for change,” said Bradford. “The students supporting the Building Blue Bridges mission to improve relationships with all law enforcement agencies will have the opportunity to lead and inspire the nation.”

The walk began on the Sixth Street Viaduct at Whittier Boulevard and Boyle Avenue and ended at Sixth and Mateo streets.

Students from various high schools, along with teachers and parents strapped on their walking shoes and took part.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore led a question-and-answer session with students about police reform and de-escalation education training.
