Evidence and Insight for Better Policymaking

Public Agenda’s Hidden Common Ground on Race and Police Reform examined public opinion on many of the most pressing questions prompted by the tragic murder of George Floyd and the ensuing protests, including policing bias, use of force, and militarization as well as how policing fits into the priorities of communities and the broader effects of racism in society.

Aimed primarily at elected city officials, public administrators, and other city stakeholders, we plan to address the scientific evidence behind these questions with a particular focus on the downstream impacts and lived experiences of marginalized and underrepresented communities who are often disproportionately affected by these issues. 

Our goal is to provide the evidence and insight policymakers need to effectively and equitably promote public safety in their communities.
