The Criminalization Simulation (CrimSim) is a session developed by Uncensored, composed from true stories of criminalization from youth. The participants are developing scenarios and situations that will provide insight into how negative stereotypes influence police-citizen interaction; how police might communicate more effectively with vulnerable persons; and, how empathy and understanding can play a positive role in enforcing safety in our community.
All segments of our City will benefit from this type of innovative, educational opportunity, whether they are a marginalized community member, social workers, teachers, health providers, police or bylaw officer, politician or part of the mainstream. This is a creative solution that will benefit and positively impact safety and security for all Edmontonians! We are excited to have a CrimSim session at iHuman Youth Society on June 20, 2017.
