Join us for an "online" town hall meeting on the subject of police brutality, citizen protocol and enhancing community-police relations. Learn what should be done in order to prevent another Ferguson in your city.
Joining us live in the discussion is esteemed Civil Rights Attorney John Burris-- You may know his work from his landmark case, client and movie; Fruitvale Station and Client Oscar Grant (RIP). He has been counsel in chief on several other high profile, landmark cases such as the Oakland Riders class action. He's represented everyone from Rodney King, Barry Bonds to Tupac. He is also the author of "BLUE vs. BLACK: Let's End the Conflict between Police and Minorities."
Attorney Burris will be joined by famed Civil Rights Attorney, Irv Joyner. Attorney Joyner has been in the trenches and on the front lines of many Civil Rights cases, the Moral Monday Protests, and he is the lead attorney for the North Carolina NAACP. He was also named as "case monitor" in the infamous "Duke Lacrosse" case and countless other cases representing notable clients. Attorney Joyner has also authored several books and is a Law Professor at North Carolina Central School of Law, Durham, NC.
Also confirmed on the show is Police Chief Keith Humphrey of Norman, Oklahoma. He will be on to share how he has played a pivotal role in changing the culture and the conversation between police agencies and the community in his city. He will also discuss ways in which other cities can create a model and/or learn that it is ok to move forward in this way without fear of liability; as a preventative measure and perhaps in creating a paradigm shift in the culture of police and community members.
