A History of Violence: Institutional Racism in Our Criminal Legal Systemby GDN Shared Post June 4, 2020
Friday, June 5, 1:30 to 2:45 PM ET
The killing of George Floyd is not a singular or unique event. Nationally, black people are three times as likely as white people to be killed by police, with even more people of color surviving police violence but suffering grievous physical and emotional injuries that reverberate throughout their communities. Join the American Constitution Society, the National Bar Association , and the Society of American Law Teachers, for a discussion of the institutional and systemic racism within our criminal legal system that leads to disproportionate police violence against black and brown people and against the protesters who take to the streets demanding change, and the ways we can address it.
