Coauthor of Pulled Over: How Police Stops Define Race and Citizenship


Description

This lecture will be the last in a series of three intended to create a conversation between researchers, law enforcement, and citizens. In an age of social media, incidents between law enforcement and citizens across the country have garnered national attention. As concerns of policing within minority communities rise, cities across the United States are experiencing political protests that have not be witnessed in decades. Given the climate surrounding police and minority communities, this lecture series hopes to begin a community wide dialogue focusing on topics such as, tensions between communities of color and law enforcement, race and community engagement efforts by local police departments, research on criminal justice, policing, and immigration enforcement at the local level.
