Racial Justice is the focused, intentional, and organized ministry of Keirsh Cochran. Keirsh is a veteran police officer who was born and raised in central Indiana. Keirsh travels the United States to speak to community groups, colleges, churches, and living rooms full of neighbors about racial reconciliation and policing in America. Keirsh earned a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from Huntington University and an M.P.A (Summa Cum Laude) from Indiana Wesleyan University. Keirsh has received numerous departmental awards for bravery, valor, and life-saving efforts. Keirsh was awarded the 2019 Distinguished Young Alumnus from Huntington University. Keirsh lives in Fort Wayne with his wife Christie, daughter Eve, and cats Stella and Woodrow.
Keirsh believes and lives out the idea that through intentional efforts and prayer police officers and the white community can bridge racial barriers to meet in unity at the table of brotherhood with their black neighbors. Keirsh passionately pursues racial reconciliation through Community Oriented Policing Strategies by always taking the time to get out of his car to play a game of basketball or get his baseball glove out of his car for a quick catch with neighborhood kids. Keirsh patrols a racially and economically diverse and multicultural neighborhood in Fort Wayne.
“I believe the biggest lie being told in America today is that we must choose between pursuing racial reconciliation and supporting our police officers.”Keirsh Cochran
