Past Harms, Present Memories: Law Enforcement and Families Affected by Historical Police Violence In Conversation

This convening will focus on the loved ones of those killed by law enforcement from 1930 to 1955 in the four states with the highest concentration of killings: Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. We will examine a history that was close to erasure and discuss methods for reparations. Together with police chiefs, we will examine actions necessary to acknowledge the lives lost, incidents of violence, injustices of failed investigations, sham legal proceedings and lenient sentences.
