Policing Through the Words and Work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
January 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PSTFree
About this event
This town hall, presented in collaboration with the ACLU’s Smart Justice Campaign, will honor Martin Luther King and will examine his work from a different standpoint. In keeping with our 2021 presentations on Racial Justice Through Reimagining Policing, this town hall will examine Rev. King’s speeches and work that focus on Policing. Although Rev. King’s speeches focused on segregation through the lens of poverty, labor, global human rights and war, his work also focused extensively on police brutality and structural discrimination. Clips from Dr. King’s speeches and from SDARJ’s 2021 presentations will be presented, along with commentary from Haneef Salaam, Director of the ACLU Smart Justice Campaign and Dr. James Nolan, SDARJ’s expert on reimagining policing.
In addition, there will be a short presentation from the SDARJ Legislative-Advocacy Committee previewing the upcoming legislative session.
