AP Art Students, "Broken Windows" Policing, and Equity for All


This past week, CHAH AP Art students attended a pop-up art installation that addressed the theory of “broken windows” policing. The “broken windows” theory posits that visible signs of crime, like graffiti and vandalism, create more serious crimes. The theory has been questioned and challenged by many communities, citing improper use of police force on minor infractions.

CHAH Art students debated the pros and cons of the theory, while viewing beautiful art installations.

Later in the week, several of those same art students had their work featured at the annual CLOTH Gala, a fundraising event put on by our partner organization, Community League of the Heights, on the topic of “Equity for All”.
