A Welcoming Waco Update 
Back in May, we shared some information about the formation of a group focused on securing an inclusive non-discrimination ordinance in Waco with the freedom to engage directly with candidates and elections. That work has continued this spring and summer, and one of the outcomes so far has been the planned hosting of a community conversation with Waco PD meant to address concerns raised around policing and the LGBTQ+ community (tentatively scheduled for September). 

In the meantime, Chief Victorian (Chief of Waco PD) wanted to share the following message with the community:
Since our meeting is not until September, would you please share this link with our LGBTQ+ community regarding our Citizens Police Academy?  I would really like to see our LGBTQ+ community represented.  If anyone interested in participating would feel more comfortable waiting until after our social in September, then we’ll have another in the Spring.  I just want them to know that EVERYONE is welcomed, plus I think it will be a lot of fun and an opportunity to see what their PD is doing.
