This free Town Hall Webinar is sponsored by the Institute for Law Enforcement Administration, a division of The Center for American and International Law.  Hear from industry leaders on critical issues of our time. 

Policing in America is at a crossroad, and never have we as people so openly questioned how people of color experience law enforcement. Those cries are now being heard throughout our society.  There now stands an opportunity to make history, to remake policing, and to have a significant impact on society.  Join us and share your ideas on how we can truly make this country a place where all are treated equally.
