Impact Campaign

¿Cómo nos arreglamos?” is a well-known slang phrase in Mexico when describing the mutually beneficial corruption agreements between citizens and authorities. It roughly translates to: “How are we going to fix this?” and insinuates the invitation: “shall we grease the wheel?”. It is with this fixing phrase in mind that we launched a call for ideas on how to “fix” the most broken part of the police- citizen relationship: trust.

Our Ideathon transformed into a country-wide virtual competition that asked teams of students and police cadets to come up with proposals on how to rebuild the eroded trust between citizens and police officers. We invited colleges and police academies to co-host this event with us. The response and involvement from allies, institutions and participants exceeded our expectations.

The following five videos show the proposals of the winning teams:
