Coffee Talk: Unequal Justice — The Need for Police Reform and How to Accomplish It
Saturday, August 8, 2020
10:30 am – 12:00 pm
The brutal murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer has resulted in an awakening to the reality of systemic racism and unnecessary police violence in the United States. In the aftermath of this tragic incident, calls for major reforms in police departments throughout the country abound.
In this session, we will discuss racial inequities and culture of unnecessary force and violence that for years has dominated policing in America. We will also discuss potential reforms – what changes are necessary, and how we might transform policing to begin to establish a relationship of trust between all communities and racial groups and the police officers who are paid to serve and protect them.
