The St. John's University School of Law Alumni of Color Chapter is hosting a symposium that will provide the law school community and the public in general an opportunity to Listen, Learn, and Act from community members, law enforcement, policy-makers, activists, and scholars.
Keynote Speaker: Ben Crump, Civil Rights Attorney
In Panel 1 we will LISTEN as we examine the impact of street-level encounters between law enforcement and communities of color.
In Panel 2, we will LEARN as we hear from a diverse group of scholars and stakeholders engaged in an honest dialogue about the historical and legal precedent that has facilitated unequal and/or unjust encounters between law enforcement and people of color.
In Panel 3, we will ACT and strategize to develop solutions that address the complexities of systemic racism and oppression within our criminal justice system.
11 a.m. - 3 p.m. EST
