New York City is in the midst of reckoning with its history of over-policing and abuse in Black and Brown communities. As this conversation emerges, City policy makers, community advocates, and law enforcement are debating police reform measures--including whether reform is even possible. Join us for a discussion of the various proposed pathways and approaches to address these historic problems. Our esteemed panel will tackle some of the principal tensions confronting our society today and address the challenges of advancing change in how policing and law enforcement is carried out by the NYPD. Also discussed will be how the legal profession can best participate in this conversation and play a productive role in bringing about effective and timely change.
