This series began in response to the police killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020. In this work, we hope to explore, enlighten and engage ourselves and the campus community with ongoing panel discussions, lectures, presentations, and film screenings related to the history and current context of race, policing, and criminal justice. We invite leading scholars, journalists, lawyers, healthcare professionals, current and veteran members of law enforcement, faith-based leaders, the formerly incarcerated, artists, activists, students, and more to share their experience, expertise, and passion with our university community and beyond. Our aim is to have an ongoing conversation about the way criminal justice operates - especially in communities of color - in order to empower and inform our students, faculty, staff, and residents of the Inland Empire. We recognize that these are long and sometimes difficult conversations, as we continue the series through the 2021-22 academic year.
