Thanks to our panelists March 3 for our discussion about race and policing here in Indiana County preceding the screening of the Netflix documentary, 13th.
The discussion ranged from the reorganization of the Indiana County Chapter of the NAACP, to how to connect young students of color to careers in law enforcement. The upshot is to just do it.
The Racial Justice Campaign is engaged with the Indiana Police department to expand their internship program, focusing on students of color, and also to offer annual regional training on diversity and inclusion for police in our region. The Campaign meets again 3/22, 7pm at Commonplace Coffee shop. You are welcome.
You can watch the entire panel from last Friday right here.
