Recent events have demonstrated that communication is desperately needed to understand differing perspectives, experiences and views, so that we can discuss important issues with respect, honesty, grace and courage. Nowhere is this more needed than the relationship between law enforcement and the communities which they serve. DRI’s Protect and Serve Task Force will host a Virtual Town Hall on March 3, 2022, beginning at 12:00 p.m. (CST) with an impressive and diverse panel discussing the hard and important issues surrounding police-community relations, police reforms and community expectations. The town hall is offered free of charge and will include the following panelists:
Bernard Parks, Former Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department and Former Councilmember, Los Angeles City Council
Shawn Brokos, Director of Community Security, Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
Anthony Chapa, Executive Director, Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association (HAPCOA)
Susan M. Lin, Kairys, Rudovsky, Messing, Feinberg & Lin LLP, Philadelphia, PA
Isaiah Thomas, Councilmember, At-Large, Philadelphia City Council
This webinar is free for DRI members and non-members.
