Criminal Justice Policy at UVA's Miller Center

The Miller Center for Public Affairs at the University of Virginia announces After Ferguson and Baltimore: The Past, Present, and Future of Criminal Justice Policy in America, an event in its “Great Issues” series.  It will take place on Friday, March 25 2:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. on Central Grounds in the Nau Hall Auditorium (Room 101):
From Ferguson to Baltimore, the reemergence of police brutality in American cities has sparked passionate debates on race and criminal justice. Excessive use of deadly force by police officers is under intense scrutiny from the national media, policymakers, and social activist groups across the country. The Miller Center's GREAT ISSUES program, in conjunction with the Black Student Research Network (BSRN), the Black Student Alliance (BSA), the Latino Student Alliance (LSA), the NAACP, and the University Democrats, will explore these issues through a panel discussion featuring Ronald Hampton and Elizabeth Hinton. The panel will discuss the history of policing in America and look forward to policy solutions of the future. Join us to engage with one of the our country’s most important issues and learn more about the changing dynamics of twenty-first century policing in America.
