Cosmos, MD (cos/they) speaks with Dara Kwayera Imani Bayer (she/her) about something being birthed in Cambridge, MA that will change how we care for our communities.
Cambridge HEART (Holistic Emergency Alternative Response Team) is a unique approach to crisis of all kinds, removing policing and offering non punitive responses to harm. Imagine a world where we could speak with those who are having conflict within their homes, with others, in schools, even in hospitals.
That's what this response team will offer, beginning in the Summer of 2023!
Dara is an artist, activist, and has a lifetime of experience that brings her to this part of her journey. Identifying as a multi-cultural and multi-racial being herself, she brings in her personal experiences and diverse political education to the world through her art forms and activism.
