Public Safety & Criminal Justice: Public Grief and Community Healing

September 14 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 pm PDT

Leadership Indianapolis presents a three-part discussion series on Public Safety & Criminal Justice.

About this event

Often, conversations around public safety and criminal justice focus primarily on efforts to curb crime.

However, the experiences of those who seek to create collaboration, reconciliation and progress in these areas present another valuable opportunity for discussion and excavation.

Leadership Indianapolis’ upcoming Public Safety & Criminal Justice discussion series will center the perspective of citizens with lived experience and those working to create change in our community.

Attendees will learn about programs created to prevent recidivism for the formerly incarcerated, initiatives that provide community support in traumatic times and collaborative efforts around repairing the relationship between citizens and law enforcement.


Part 2: Public Grief and Community Healing – September 14, 2021

• Speakers: Shonna Majors (Director of Community Violence Reduction, Office of Public Health and Safety), DeAndra Yates (Purpose 4 My Pain)
