Deliberative Dialogue on Safety and Justice

"Safety and Justice: How Should Communities Reduce Violence?" A deliberative dialogue will be held in Moseley Center 215 at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 26.

Many Americans are concerned that something is going on with violence in communities, law enforcement, and race that is undermining the national ideals of safety and justice for all. How should communities increase safety while at the same time ensuring justice? What should we do to ensure that the police have the support they need to fairly enforce the law? What should we do as citizens to help reduce violence of all kinds in our communities and the national as a whole?

This Deliberative Dialogue on the topic of safety and justice is an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to gather and exchange diverse views and experiences to seek a shared understanding of a challenge facing our society and to search for common ground for action. This model has been established by the National Issues Forum, a nonpartisan, nationwide network of locally sponsored public forums for the consideration of public policy issues. Advance registration is required so please click here to register.
