Kid’s Law Academy

The Micro-Nonprofit Network Inc is committed to be a part of the social justice movement. Earlier this year the organization partnered with the Chesapeake Police Department to host several community conversations and events with diverse groups which included community leaders, women, children, black men, and police officers. Our platform was called “Beyond the March” it is a movement that requires strategic planning for a three-year time period.

The Kids Law Academy was birthed from one of the community conversations with children. TKLA was started to address some of the social justice issues that were sparked by the death of George Floyd, but from the perspective of kids who are often left out of the conversation and community forums. Our 12-week interactive program was designed by a kid’s advisory board, staff, community leader, and experts in law enforcement. The programs aim to introduce kids to the law enforcement profession and to allow kids a voice for advocacy and change within our communities. Our 12-week programs include some of the following sessions:

  • Camera Ready (Gathering forensic evidence connected with a crime)
