Immersive service, learning and reflection
About the Program
An Officer and a Mensch is a non-traditional leadership program providing district attorneys and police officers with the opportunity to build understanding and empathy with historically oppressed communities like the Tenderloin. Led by CSJ’s Rabbi Michael Lezak in partnership with University of Oregon Police Chief Matt Carmichael and Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig, participating police officers and district attorneys from across the West Coast come to GLIDE for three days of immersive service, learning and reflection, serving alongside GLIDE staff while focusing on four areas of leadership: Wellness, Growth, Spirit and Empathy.
