Abstract: In light of the historical animus that exists between poor, marginalized communities of color and members of law enforcement, this manuscript will focus on the role of crisis journalists in helping bridge this divide. Research abounds regarding the many physical, psychological, financial, legal, and social inequities between poor, marginalized communities of color, and as such, members of this group have come to accept that: (1) no one wants to hear about their experiences; (2) no one cares about their experiences; or (3) no change will come from voicing their experiences. Given these realities, I will provide specific ways that crisis journalists can encourage members of this group to share their experiences, why it would be advantageous for crisis journalists to offer their findings to law enforcement and members of the judiciary to provide a deeper (gives a contextual understanding of the lives of poor, marginalized communities of color). Furthermore, I discuss how crisis journalists can work with other professionals (researchers, practitioners) to create a Community of Care.

Keywords: Community of Care, Crisis Journalists, Law Enforcement, Poor Communities, Practitioners, Qualitative, Researchers, Social Inequity.
