Community Conversations: Policing and Racial Justice in Chicago and Beyond: Where do we go from here?

The Community Conversations series provides the DePaul law community with a forum for discussing timely legal and policy issues with candor, dignity and respect in accordance with our Vincentian tradition, and it considers calls to action that will shape our community going forward.

Our first conversation this academic year will focus on racial justice and systemic racism. This interactive panel will examine a range of topics, including law enforcement transparency and accountability, police divestment and defunding, and police practices such as “stop and frisk." Subsequent conversations will discuss health disparities and the COVID-19 pandemic, and voter disenfranchisement.
