Ali sharing his “25 Things I’ve Learned During My First 25 Years Of Marriage That Can Be Used To Improve The Police-Community Relationship,” more than two dozen reconciliation experts and social justice visionaries share their real-life experiences, lessons learned, best practices and refreshing ways to foster reconciliation in communities.  This book is the perfect study-guide to accompany the film “WALKING WHILE BLACK: L.O.V.E. Is The Answer.” Together, the book and the film will equip America to learn how to utilize the power of transformational love to break down walls and build bridges of reconciliation.

Excerpts from the Book

L.O.V.E. Is The Answer Book Cover

“Put simply, there is not a corner of this globe that would not benefit from generous application of the L.O.V.E. principals.”
– Doug Woodhams, Santa Monica Police Department FBI Terrorism Task Force Member and Colonel in the United States Marine Corps Reserves

“You see, this isn’t about some petty stop.  It isn’t about racist and biased policies like ‘stop-and-frisk’. It’s about the staggering toll of policies of stopping law-abiding citizens of all ages, for ridiculous violations, like Walking While Black, Driving While Black, and Breathing While Black.”
– Sadiq Ali, Executive Director, Maryland MENTOR

“We as police officers can choose to be compassionate and love our fellow human beings, and we can make tomorrow better for all people. As a result of one serendipitous encounter, a cop who didn’t want to be a cop, would not become someone who relentlessly pursues arriving a solution to this massive problem. Make no mistake, This is a problem that can be solved. 
– Lt Tim McMillan, Retired Peace Officer
