Peace and Police Reform

September 22, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Peace demands attention to individual, social, and community needs regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or economic status. It cannot be realized when police as militarized representatives of the state exert extreme violence repressively, mercilessly, and with impunity. Police reform processes are essential to address the unnecessary violent police practices as well as the impunity with which they are carried out. Join the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution Dialogue & Difference Project, Diversity and the Office for Coalition Building and Diversity Education on September 22, 2020, 7:30pm-9:00pm for a virtual dialogue and panel.

We have invited two panelists. Dr. Rashawn Ray, a David M. Rubenstein Fellow in Governance Studies at The Brookings Institution, Professor of Sociology and Executive Director of the Lab for Applied Social Science Research (LASSR) at the University of Maryland, College Park and Dr. Author Romano, an Assistant Professor at the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution at the George Mason University Korea Campus.

RSVPs are required. RSVP by emailing: elinnem@gmu.edu Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution at the George Mason University Korea Campus.
