ILG Offers Public Safety Reform & Innovation Webinar Series
March 11, 2021
The killing of George Floyd was the spark, but the fuel for the current outcry for police reform had been building for a long time amidst shootings of unarmed people of color, a broken criminal justice system and structural racial and socio-economic inequities. How can we channel public outrage and demands for radical restructuring toward positive changes in the paradigm of public safety and policing? A new, free webinar series hosted by ILG partner Renne Public Law Group will explore these complex issues and more. The first session, The Catalyst and the Context for Reform, will be moderated by ILG’s CEO & Executive Director Erica L. Manuel on Friday, March 12, 2021, from 9:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. Register here.
The first session will set the stage for exploring proposed public safety reforms and innovations by seeking to more fully understand the core problems in the current public safety.
Registration is FREE and sessions will be held on various Fridays from 9:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. from March – April 2021.
