Panel on the Demilitarization of the Police

Last Thursday I was a panelist at an event called “A Thin Blue Line: Combatting Police Brutality in Our Communities”.

The event was a panel discussion on how local police agencies are working to combat police brutality and ensure that the campus community in which I work does not become the next Ferguson,  Tulsa, Charlotte, etc.

I also engaged in conversation with students, professors, and law enforcement officers on what actions police can take to better maintain relationships specifically with communities of color.

I’ll share my take-aways either here or at Notes From An Aspiring Humanitarian.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
