The American Sociological Association will host a webinar, “Racializing Police Violence,” at 1 p.m., Central Standard Time (CST) on Tuesday, July 14. Keon Gilbert, DrPH, co-director of the Institute for Healing Justice and Equity, and associate professor in the College for Public Health and Social Justice, will moderate the discussion.
About the Webinar
The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Rayshard Brooks have galvanized the United States to address police brutality and systemic racism. Tune in to hear from scholars who have studied this topic for years as they provide information about the racial and organizational context of police violence.
This virtual session for the American Sociological Association focuses on innovative empirical applications to better understanding trends in police officer decision-making, how local policies influence policing outcomes, and the role of civilian characteristics in the likelihood of experiencing a police shooting.
