Community Capitals Framework (CCF) for Community Safety & Community Health Connections with the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights (UDHR)

Illustrated version of each Community Capital Framework sectionAs a program of DSAL (Alameda County Deputy Sheriffs’ Activities League), we are excited to communicate about the Community Capitals Framework that guides DSAL’s work, as well as that of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO).  As explained, in 2015, by the Nebraska Institute of Agriculture and Economics, the Community Capitals Framework is a way of evaluating as well as strengthening communities, by presenting seven kinds of capital vital to maintaining a healthy, vibrant community with a robust economy:

With the Community Capitals Framework as a guide, the ACSO is implementing what they call Community Capitals Policing, an approach that, with DSAL’s programs, recognizes that public safety intersects with public health and placemaking.

TWAICB became a program of DSAL in 2014, complementing the incredible work already underway to strengthen community.  We initiated The World As It Could Be Is Within Reach Rite of Passage program with the aim to initiate youth as engaged members of the community, and to know what it means to be part of a healthy community, using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) as a guiding framework.

The 2017-18 Arroyo Rite of Passage Class created a beautiful graphic image for their culminating presentation, showing the UDHR as the impetus to take action for a healthy community.  It is meaningful and inspiring to have such a strong connection across the Community Capitals Framework, Community Capitals Policing and the UDHR.
