In Search of Social Justice: Criminal Justice Reform and the Restoration of Solidarity and Trust in our Communities

Tuesday, July 28, 2020                  10:00 AM EST (NY Time)

The recent killing of George Floyd by a police officer in the United States triggered widespread protests and demonstrations, both in the USA and globally, calling for an end to racism, police brutality, and demands for criminal justice reform, including greater accountability for offending police officers, ending choke holds, defunding of police, as well a broader range of reforms that cut across a wider spectrum of society. Emotions are raw, and polarization is at its peak. What can be done to support criminal justice reform, and to restore or establish greater solidarity and trust in multi-racial, multi-ethnic societies?
