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 third session on Thursday, August 6th, will focus on Imagining Better Futures for Public Safety–and How We Might Get There. And ask, “what’s your ideal vision for public safety and community well-being in the future? What steps might lead there? How can we better address the concerns we are facing about race, racism, and public safety?”
