First Wednesdays: Let's talk about race, policing and criminal justice reform - October 7, 2015 - Richmond, Indiana

FirstWednesdayBlastFree and open to the public!The deaths of unarmed Black men by white police officers in Ferguson, Missouri and other communities have raised issues of racism and fair treatment of minorities by police. Some communities are embracing body cameras as a solution, and others have looked to creating a more diverse police force. The ACLU's Campaign for Smart Justice addresses these and many other issues of criminal justice reform.
