Prof. Vesla Weaver's Portals Policing Project creates a “wormhole” in highly policed communities using a portal.

To-date, Weaver and her colleagues have amassed more than 850 conversations across 14 neighborhoods in six cities. It's the most extensive collection of first-hand accounts of policing to date.
