From the South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race, SOMa Action and SOMA Justice:
Get the full story behind police bias in use of force from the journalists who broke the story. Then join us to discuss what comes next.
Star Ledger journalists Stephen Stirling and Craig McCarthy will discuss their reporting of racial inequity in police use of force in South Orange, Maplewood, and throughout New Jersey.
They will be joined for a panel discussion by Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League; Jennifer Sellitti, Director of Training state-wide for the Office of the Public Defender in New Jersey and head of the Office’s Police Accountability Project; and Alexander Shalom, Senior Supervising Attorney at the ACLU-NJ.
The panel discussion will be followed by Q&A.
