ADVISORY: As Baltimore Prepares for Freddie Gray Trial, CAP Hosts Conversation About Police Reform Based on New Recommendations
The Center for American Progress has teamed up with the Campaign for Justice, Safety, and Jobs—a coalition of Baltimore-based grassroots advocacy organizations—to release a new set of six recommendations to reform the Baltimore Police Department.
Washington, D.C. — As Baltimore and the nation prepare for the trial of the police officers involved in Freddie Gray’s death, the Center for American Progress and the Campaign for Justice, Safety, and Jobs have released a set of six recommendations to reform the Baltimore Police Department—recommendations that could be adapted and applied to police departments across the nation that are also working on rebuilding community-police relations. On Monday, October 19, CAP Senior Fellow and Campaign for Justice, Safety, and Jobs Co-Convener Ben Jealous will moderate a conversation with advocates, organizers, and researchers to discuss how policymakers can begin to build trust between the police in Baltimore and the communities they have sworn to serve.
Please join CAP on Monday, October 19, at 12:00 p.m. for this important event. Members of the media can RSVP here.
