The Berkeley Forum Presents a Forum on Police and Community
Panel Discussion | March 21 | 6-7:30 p.m. | Haas School of Business, Chou Hall N500
Kriss Worthington; Brandon Anderson; Rashidah Grinage
The discussion over police and use of force, a constant refrain in Berkeleys community discourse, was revitalized over UC Berkeleys Free Speech Week last September. Nationally, protests against brutality have drawn to attention the relationship between police and the community. Large scale social movements have been critical of the nations police presence, concerning issues of accountability and excessive use of force in minority communities. In response, others have argued that law enforcement needs a broad mandate to maintain order in society. Join us on Wednesday, March 21st, as we discuss concerns regarding systemic violence, and further the dialogue on the role of law enforcement in Berkeley, the Bay Area, and the nation.
