De-escalating Disability explores the intersectionality of autism, race, policing.

On this fourth installment, we take a closer look at policing in South Carolina, speak with the head of the state's criminal justice academy, and hear what others on the frontline of the law are doing to improve relations with the communities they serve.

A collaborative effort, the idea for De-escalating Disability originated out of the Riley Institute’s Diversity Leaders Initiative last year. Jackson, a participant in the initiative’s Midlands Class XIII, worked with his peers in Group One, which included Family Connection of South Carolina Chief Executive Director Amy Holbert, to brainstorm and outline the project.
