Racism in America:
Policing and Incarceration
Wednesday, September 16, 2020, 4:00 p.m. PDT
Join us for the first panel discussion in the College of Arts & Sciences’ year-long series exploring racism in America.
Panelists will discuss racism in policing and incarceration in the United States, including why efforts aimed at reforming our criminal justice system so often fail, what activists really mean when they call for abolishing prisons and defunding the police, and more.
