Police Reform in Westchester – A Community Conversation
January 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
What’s the current state of community policing in Westchester? How do race, ethnicity, and other factors impact the way civilians are treated by police? What steps are needed to ensure the safety and dignity of every human being who experiences an encounter with law enforcement?
Join us at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 27, when Rivertowns Episcopal Parishes Action on Inclusion and Race (REPAIR) hosts an online forum about these urgent issues.
We’ll hear from a distinguished panel that includes Kenneth Chamberlain, Jr., founder of the Westchester Coalition for Police Reform; Kathy Kaufman, a sociologist who has studied policing in Westchester and is a member of the Irvington committee on police reform; and Mayo Bartlett, civil rights attorney and co-chair of the Westchester County Police Reform and Reimagining Task Force.
You’ll have a chance to ask questions and learn what concerned citizens can do to support the cause of just and equitable policing for all.
