  As high-profile episodes of violence have highlighted the issue of use of excessive force and mistreatment of people of color by police, what is the way forward for law enforcement and the communities they are duty bound to “serve and protect”?

 

Speakers will consider: What have we learned from the tragedies of the past few years? What are the strategies and philosophies that will enable police to overcome patterns of behavior that place a wall between them and their communities they serve? Will they be able to reinvent how they interact with all people of color, especially black men?
