“Panel Discussion on Race and Policing

September 28, 2016
3:30 – 5:00 pm
UC Hastings College of the Law
Louis B. Mayer Lounge
198 McAllister Street

In the last few years, a series of tragic incidents raised public attention to a serious crisis of trust between police departments and the communities they serve, particularly communities of color and of low income. These incidents have led to vocal riots and to the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, leading to violent clashes between activists and police officers. What are the roots of this crisis? How can racialized practices in policing be understood and addressed? What is being done, and what should be done, to heal the broken trust between the police and the community? This panel on Race & Policing will feature voices of activists, police officers, lawyers, community-relations officials, and academics, in an effort to tackle these important questions.


Race and Policing Panel at UC Hastings
WHO: Panelists include San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi, San Francisco Police Department Interim Chief Toney Chaplin, UC Berkeley Professor Nikki Jones, Former Director of the DOJ’s Community Service Relations Service Grande Lum, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, and UC Hastings Professor Hadar Aviram (moderator).
WHAT: UC Hastings is hosting a panel of leaders in the criminal justice field — activists, police officers, lawyers, community-relations officials, and academics — to discuss the complicated relationship between race and policing.
WHEN: Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: Louis B. Mayer Lounge, UC Hastings College of the Law, 198 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 OR watch via livestream

Now, there are bigger classical domes in the Old World, sure. And there are bigger domes in the New World, but they isn’t classical, they’re like football stadia ‘n stuff.

So does that mean it’s taller than the U.S. Capitol Building? Yes it does. On purpose.

If you want to see something gothicker and bigger, you’ll have to head to Europe.
