Cardozo Law School, Room 204
Presented by the Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy and Communities United for Police Reform and hosted by Letitia James, NYC Public Advocate
Please join Public Advocate Letitia James, the Floersheimer Center, and Communities United for Police Reform for a critical community event addressing the path towards meaningful and lasting stop and frisk reforms in 2014 in the wake of recent developments in the stop and frisk class action lawsuits, Floyd v. City of New York, Ligon v. City of New York, and Davis v. City of New York.
The panel will bring together police reform experts and advocates from New York and around the United States to discuss both the remedial processes established by the U.S. District Court in its landmark August 2013 ruling in Floyd and how to best ensure that these processes result in meaningful and lasting reforms to the stop and frisk practices of the New York Police Department. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
The panel will include:
Professor Emeritus, University of Omaha
Cincinnati Black United Front
Communities United for Police Reform
U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division
and will be moderated by
Professor, Cardozo Law School
