Building Mutual Respect & Accountability
It has been 17 months since the tragic killing of George Floyd drew worldwide attention to issues of police brutality, systemic racism, and social injustice. How has that heightened awareness impacted police and community relationships at the local level? Please join us as we bring together law enforcement and south metro neighborhood leaders for a meaningful conversation about the role that we can all play in building stronger, safer communities and fostering more inclusive and trusting environments. Through candid dialogue with Clayton Police Chief Kevin Roberts, this event will seek to create an environment where neighbors and police listen to one another, develop compassion, and find common ground.
OUR CONVERSATION INCLUDES:
