Join the Committee For Racial Justice for an interesting evening of discussion about the future of policing. The co-sponsors for this August 16 Day of Dialogue will be the Human Relations Council of Santa Monica, NAACP Santa Monica/Venice chapter, African American Parent/Student/Staff Support Group, and the Church in Ocean Park.

This Day of Dialogue will be facilitated by the Institute of Non Violence in LA which is headed by Avis Ridley-Thomas. The INVLA will provide trained facilitators and an informative brochure with questions for small group discussion to help participants delve into the topic of the future of policing. The Institute for Non-Violence in Los Angeles – Days of Dialogue is launching a year-long series of Days of Dialogue on the Future of Policing, partnering with law enforcement, community organizations, faith-based organizations and others, for a year of dialogue events.

On August 16 people will have a chance to talk about reforming police culture in light of examples of racial profiling and use of excessive force, both on a national and local level. This is one way to try to help improve communication between law enforcement officers and our communities of color.

Free extra parking will be available at the SMMUSD parking lot on the West side of 4th St. between Hill St. and Ashland.

This is part of an ongoing series of monthly workshops hosted by the Committee For Racial Justice. Church in Ocean Park, 235 Hill St. 6 – 8:30 p.m. (potluck supper at 6 p.m. & program at 6:30 p.m.)
