Mattapan residents Shekia Scott and Segun Idowu co-founded the Boston Police Camera Action Team (also known as BPCAT) on August 13, 2014

BPCAT was born out of a frustration with a lack of solutions to systemic issues affecting communities of color. The co-founders decided talking and tweeting were not enough and BPCAT was formed.

The group is committed to not only equipping all of Boston's police officers with body cameras, but also drafting the rules and procedures that they would follow once they are outfitted with these
body cameras.

About CCI

CCI Logo

Community Change was born out of the Civil Rights Movement and in response to the Kerner Commission which named racism as "a white problem." CCI has done what few organizations are willing to do: shine a spotlight on the roots of racism in white culture with the intention of dealing with racism at its source, as well as with its impact on communities of color.
