The One Love Symposium presents a panel featuring Sheriff Clayton and other local professionals who will discuss the goal of the One Love project, which is to build a professional learning curriculum from the ground up! This curriculum is intended to support professionals across a range of jobs to make more equitable decisions at the point of service moment (this is the moment when we first come into contact with a service professional. We know this "first impression" moment is very powerful and impacts how we are treated by those professionals and ultimately what services, resources, and outcomes we experience).

This project has developed out of a need to help professionals who are empowered to make decisions about YOU, including doctors, teachers, and police to improve their ability to make those decisions. Area high school students have partnered with researchers from EMU and UM to begin this process. Youth Data Collectors will present results from our survey (What does a doctor, teacher, or police officer need to KNOW to be GOOD at their job?) to area professionals and subject matter experts as we continue the process of building a community-sourced body of information to improve practices at the point of service moment. This community-based project is a continuation of work that began in August, 2021 and is the first of three performance nights that will include linked performances and panel discussions in Detroit and Ann Arbor.
