Park Hill Collective Impact was invited to talk on a workshop round table about how to included community voice in collecting data around the recent curfew reform actions taking place in their community. The workshop was called “#CURFEW, REALLY.” PHCI sat on a panel with Denver Chief of Police - Paul Pazen, Department of Public Safety - Michael Sapp, and Public Safety Youth Programs - Pat Hendrick. This was a result of presenting the PHCI curfew survey findings and continuing the conversation that was started to have consistent messaging and to educate students and parents on curfew laws.
