Why I Joined NOBLE

“I initially joined NOBLE as a police candidate wanting to learn more about law enforcement. But I soon became more involved and have stayed involved for several reasons. As an attorney, being part of NOBLE, has enabled me to make many meaningful professional connections with individuals across various industries. As Director of Community Relations, I have been able to be at the forefront and “in the middle” of police reform, social justice, anti-gun violence, and community-police relationship-building during this crucial time in our nation. I have had countless opportunities to partner, train, and collaborate with various law enforcement agencies of all jurisdictional levels, the bench and the bar, the private corporations and philanthropic foundations, local and national media outlets, the Chicago and other municipal public school systems, clergy representatives, and community and activist groups in a strive to better relationships between the different parts of our communities and making our neighborhoods safer. It has also been a means for our family to do our part in building our community up through service and support. I look forward to continuing to give my time and energy to this organization and being an agent of change and call upon all, across all races, ethnicities, professional disciplines, and sections of our community, to join us as we need ’the whole village’ to be at the table and be part of the solution.” Attorney Carla M. Kupe-Arion
