Learn 2 Live

Kappa Alpha Psi® national social justice initiative entitled, “Learn 2 Live,” a collaborative effort with the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) to formally address one of the most critical issues affecting people of color in the United States.  Incidents of racial profiling, a lack of comprehensive policing policies, and the increasing frequency of tragic outcomes between law enforcement and persons of color have produced an environment of anger and frustration, widening the trust gap between police and communities of color.  In fact, the subject of policing in African American communities is arguably the largest civil rights issue of our current generation.  While the road to equity in social justice and the process of “bridge building” is long, complicated and requires a multi-pronged course of action, Jimmy believed that Kappa Alpha Psi® could take bold steps to prepare our children for interactions with law enforcement.  This initiative is the first step and was designed to feature a series of 200community forums nationwide between its launch date through 2025.
