Ryan started Breaking Barriers United to bridge the gap between police officers and the community. His wife and I got to know each other through my Monat business but I never really knew what he was doing until recently. Last week I found his instagram because of someone sharing his thoughts on the murder of George Floyd and the riots that ensued. I quickly started watching everything he had put out and immediately was enlightened, inspired, encouraged and moved to compassion. He shares openly his thoughts and how he's dealing with everything as an African American cop that wants people to know where he finds his hope.
