ABOUT THE SHOW
An Open and Unfiltered Conversation Between Communities and Police
This show is more than a call to action. It is the blueprint for rebuilding Community-Police relations. Mending America will bring members of local communities together with the leadership of the National Fraternal Order of Police for open and unfiltered conversations on the issues plaguing our country. The goal is to facilitate real change. We’re not just confident. We are certain that this show will help bring unprecedented police reform to our nation and a renewed respect for our Police from their community.
Using an approach as powerful and simple as grandma’s wisdom, we will open painful doors so that we can create a bridge, brick by brick, to where we need to go. Rest assured, there will be controversy and conflict, but it will be enfolded by truth and facts, not innuendos or political/personal agendas. We are asking the entire American community to weigh in on each episode so that we can build this together. Instead of disdain filled rhetoric, we can have a good old-fashioned conversation.
The show will air on iTunes, Spotify, iHeartRadio, ListenNotes, and SimpleCast initially every other Thursday with the potential of it moving to a weekly broadcast.
We hope you will join us.
