"Witkaze's Community Service Committee will be hosting a panel discussion with leading experts in the criminal justice field. This event will be held via Zoom on December 9, 2020, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. EST. During this event, the critical topics of discussion will be mass incarceration, policing, and recidivism. There will be representatives from the Innocence Project, the Bail Project, the American Civil Liberties Union, the American Correction Association, and the Law Enforcement Action Partnership. Please understand that this event will not bash or uplift one side; the Community Service Committee will be remaining neutral while moderating this event. We are not going to vilify panelists for their profession or involvement in criminal justice. This event is a well-rounded discussion that will present varying perspectives on the current climate in our community. Mentionings of race and socioeconomic status will be present in this conversation. There will be a disclaimer given before the start of the panel; we do this to ensure that all participants and audience members are as comfortable as possible with the complex discussion topics.
If you need to reach out to us immediately, please contact Simone Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org (and CC email@example.com) or call 615-689-8052.
