Policing, Criminal Justice & Race
On Thursday, July 2, 2020, Multicultural Affairs held its second Social Justice Forum:
Policing, Criminal Justice, and Race. Panelists discussed actionable items that they,
themselves, and their departments have done, are currently doing, and will be doing
to create equitable change and solutions to the criminal justice system. Panelists
were then available to answer any questions or comments asked by forum participants.
The event had over 98 people in attendance and 153 RSVPs. We would like to thank panelists
