We have all been profoundly impacted by the horrific deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and countless other lives lost due to police brutality, systemic injustice, and racial prejudice.
In times such as these, we must recommit to our values of diversity and inclusion, take a stand for equal justice under the law, and demand reform of the criminal justice system.
Please join us, “Where Do We Go From Here?”: A Conversation with Professor Ekow Yankah and Jason Starr ’10 by Zoom at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 22, 2020.
The topics will include:
