CRIMINAL JUSTICE

JOIN US FOR OUR NEXT EVENT!

Holiday Sale

Join us on Thursday, April 4th for

Policing in Black and Blue.

Webinar registration is available here: https://bitly.ws/3fKfN

African American police officers have a particularly difficult job, one that requires them to work within a system that has a painful history of racial discrimination. Join Police Chief Johnny Jennings and Rev. Dr. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, a former police officer, for a conversation on being Black in Blue. Rev. Dr. Rodney Sadler will lead the conversation exploring how Black officers hold up under the burden of being the protector of all, while knowing that the color of their skin makes them and their communities uniquely susceptible to violence by police officers. For context, Attorney James Williams will provide a short history of policing in America.

Please share and help us spread the word about this important conversation!
