Vineyard Haven, MA — Our country continues to grapple with the issue of police reform. On a regular basis, we see police interactions with African Americans that depict the criminalization of people for living their everyday lives–or worse, result in fatalities. Whether sparked by the incident in a Philadelphia Starbucks, where two men were arrested for sitting and waiting, or the fatal police shooting of an unarmed man in the backyard of his grandmother’s Sacramento home, police reform is a topic dominating national discussion.
On August 14th in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, the Center for American Progress, the American Civil Liberties Union, and Human Rights Watch will convene three authors who have written on the topic of policing—Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowrey, author of They Can’t Kill Us All; attorney Andrea Ritchie, author of Invisible No More; and Kristin Henning, contributing author to Policing the Black Man—for an in-depth conversation on policing in America.
Space is limited, but an RSVP is not required. Seating is first-come, first-served.
