Recent years have seen an explosion of protest against police brutality and repression among activists, journalists, and politicians. To discuss new strategies for putting an end to police violence, the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health assembles a panel of community activists and experts—whose gathering commemorates the one-year anniversary of Charleena Lyles’ death at the hands of Seattle police. Join this critical conversation about the threat posed to public health and safety by police violence, and what we can do to stop it.
Panel members include: Nakeya Isabell, spoken word artist and cousin of Charleena Lyles; Katrina Johnson, member of Charleena Lyles’ family; ACLU Deputy Director Michele Storms; Black Lives Matter activist Jorge Torres; Seattle public school teacher Jesse Hagopian; former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper; and authors Alex Vitale and David Correia. Their conversation is moderated by UW professor Clarence Spigner.
