What It Looked Like to Police Ourselves: An Ode to De-Escalation on a Chicago Block

This summer, my neighbors didn’t call the cops — they looked after one another

“This summer, I think I saw a glimpse of what a world would look like without police. I felt inklings of how it might be for a community like mine. It hasn’t been perfect, and I haven’t always been present enough to truly make myself a part of it. But my neighborhood has been wonderfully dynamic, collaborative, and beautifully alive.” — Devon Price
