Policing, Race, and Health: Prospects for Reform – June 26, 2020

June 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A Conversation with Rachel Hardeman, PhD, MPH, John MacDonald, PhD, and Charles Ramsey, MS

Moderated by Therese Richmond, PhD, CRNP, FAAN

Police brutality and racism have uniquely, and detrimentally, impacted the health of Black communities. The killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and many others, have resulted in renewed calls for police reform, including calls to defund or abolish police departments. Others have advocated for shifting funds to community resources such as education, job training, and violence prevention programs. Please join our panel of experts as they examine how different models of police reform can protect public health and safety while ending systematic violence and racism. Co-presented with the Penn Injury Science Center.
