Tuesday Race Talks with Stanford’s Center for Racial Justice: What exactly would it mean to “defund the police”? Is reform a better plan, or are reformists to blame for the lack of progress on issues of police brutality and unarmed killings? This conversation will explore the varied perspectives on improving America’s criminal justice system.
The guest speaker will be David Owens (SLS ’11), partner at Loevy & Loevy.
Co-hosted by the Stanford Criminal Justice Center and the Stanford Black Law Students Association (BLSA).
About Tuesday Race Talks:
Tuesday Race Talks (TRT) explore current issues related to race and racism with leading practitioners and academics in the field, frequently highlighting Stanford Law graduates, in conversation with SCRJ Faculty Director and Co-Founder, Professor Rick Banks.
SCRJ will amplify student voices to support the next generation of advocates and thought leaders. On an ongoing basis, we invite short-form articles, blog posts, poems, or other writings to feature on our website, related to TRT topics. We invite Stanford Law students’ submissions to expand the conversation on racial justice. Submissions should be sent to Diane T. Chin, Acting Director, at email@example.com for consideration, within a two-week time frame (e.g., one week before or after) discussion of any given TRT topic. Authors will be contacted if their submission is selected.
