Prior civic engagement on police/race issues

logo Latest in a series of posts on the George Floyd killing logo

We’re in the process of thinking about the Use of Force Directives and a Community Engagement Initiative memo to Chief DiLuzio by Councilmembers Reynolds and Crampsie Smith.

However, Gadfly’s morning is pretty much spoken for. Sigh.

As an historical context to the second part — the Community Engagement part — of the Reynolds/Crampsie Smith memo, a follower called Gadfly’s attention to fairly recent prior civic engagement on police/race issues.

This article says there were 4 forums altogether. Gadfly will look later for more info. But you might find this interesting as context for the current discussion.

Keep thinking!
