COMPASS Peacebuilders, Diego Lopez, and Lashawn Robinson have been nominated to serve on the Hartford Police Accountability Review Board. The Board, formed in June, develops formal recommendations on issues including cadet recruitment, hiring, and staffing practices to ensure the department is racially balanced, training and de-escalation techniques, and the use of weapons and equipment. As Peacebuilders, Diego & Lashawn engage high-risk youth in relationships to provide supports and opportunities that help them become ready, willing, and able to succeed in education, employment, and life. Diego has been with COMPASS Youth Collaborative for nine years; Lashawn has been with COMPASS for two years; they both work every day to effect change in the community. Hartford City Councilman Nick Lebron recommended Diego for this appointment. Mayor Luke Bronin recommended Lashawn for this appointment.
