Join our Charlotte Chapter for their general membership meeting on Sunday, June 3, at 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte.
When law enforcement officers do something wrong, they are rarely, if ever, held accountable. Racial bias, both explicit and implicit, has fueled widespread disparities in which people of color are subjected to street stops, vehicle searches, marijuana arrests, and even the use of deadly force by police at an alarming rate.
Join us for a panel discussion about how we are working to stop racially-biased policing, the role of community review boards, and how we can make sure law enforcement is accountable and transparent.
Panelists include Julie Eiselt, Charlotte City Council; Sarah Donaghy, Chair of the Charlotte Citizens Review Board; Chief Kerr Putney, CMPD; Robert Dawkins, S.A.F.E. Coalition; and Sarah Gillooly, ACLU of North Carolina.
This event is free and open to everyone. If you have any questions, please email Jessica Turner, Field Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
