Chief Danielle Outlaw takes our hand and walks us down the road to reconciliation with her views on 21st century policing. Her Idea? To restore the humanity IN authority. That the Police and the community must have a trusted relationship and embrace commonalities or we will continue to remain at a crossroads. If we are to achieve a future state of working together instead of against one another we must accept that change does not always come in the way we expect it to appear.
With special thanks to core the TEDxPortland organizing team, 70+ volunteers and cherished partners – without you this experience would not be possible. Our event history can be found TEDxPortland.com
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
After 20 years of service for Oakland’s Police Department, Danielle was sworn in as Portland’s 48th Chief of Police in 2018. With a background in sociology and business, she’s a bridge-builder and thoughtful listener who believes in the idea of “when we know better, we do better.” Her goal as Chief: inspire transformation and positive progression in 21st century policing via enhanced strategies here, and everywhere. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
