What IF . . . ? Public Safety, Race, & Society–An online community conversation series – 1st session

June 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT

Free

Join us online on Thursday, June 25 from 1:00-2:15 pm EDT via Zoom for the first of three exploratory discussions.

The recent police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, alongside other instances of police violence against Black Americans, has galvanized our national conscience and spurred uprisings and protests across the country and the world. To further explore diverse perspectives, uncover deeper issues, and imagine alternative futures, we invite you to join us for a new online community conversation series: What IF …? Online Community Conversations:  Public Safety, Race, and Society. This program will have three facilitated discussion sessions, each running from 1:00-2:15 pm EDT via Zoom (free registration here). You can find more information about the entire series here.

This first Session on June 25th, will focus on Uprising in the Streets:  What’s Rising Up? And ask, “What do these events, the killing of yet another Black person by the police and the protests against these killings, say to you? What do they reveal about our society, race, public safety, and law enforcement?”

Online registration for this free Zoom discussion is being handled by Iona Senior Services in DC. You’ll find more information and the free registration form at Iona’s AroundTownDC website or by clicking the blue button below.
