Racialized police violence continues to impact marginalized communities in the United States.  Join four acclaimed scholars who conduct critical and influential research on law enforcement and criminal justice systems.  They will discuss their insights and experience in developing ideas, collaborations, policies, and practices aimed at transforming law enforcement and criminal justice institutions.  Panelists will discuss the contributions made by national movements, such as Black Lives Matter, which have called for police reform, accountability, and abolition.
