National Faith & Blue Weekend
WHAT: National Faith & Blue Weekend (NFBW) is a powerful, collaborative initiative that builds bridges and breaks biases to foster more actively engaged communities through activities and outreach amongst law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve.
WHY: National Faith & Blue Weekend is based on the premise that strong communities are built on mutual respect, trust and understanding. Law enforcement entities and faith-based groups are key pillars of a local community, and when they work together, neighborhoods thrive.
HOW: National Faith & Blue Weekend is an expansion of the One Congregation One Precinct initiative (OneCOP), a program of MovementForward, Inc. which is a bridge-building, solutions-focused human & civil rights organization based in Atlanta, Georgia. The OneCOP initiative pairs officers at the beat or precinct level with local houses of worship. Similarly, NFBW is facilitated by law enforcement entities, faith-based organizations and the community.
WHO: National Faith and Blue Weekend organizers represent every major national law enforcement group in the United States of America. The effort is being co-convened by MovementForward, Inc.’s OneCOP initiative and the USDOJ Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and is the most collaborative police-community engagement project in recent history. National Faith & Blue Weekend is sponsored by FirstNet Built with AT&T along with the Motorola Solutions Foundation.
