Past Harms, Present Remedies: Law Enforcement and Families Affected by Historical Police Violence in Conversation
Saturday, October 20, 2018
10:00AM - 5:00PM
Loyola University College of Law
Gillis Long Poverty Law Center, 540 Broadway, Room 320
New Orleans, LA
This convening will focus on the loved ones of those killed by law enforcement from 1930 to 1955 in the four states with the highest concentration of killings: Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. We will examine a history that was close to erasure and discuss methods for reparations. Together with police chiefs, we will examine actions necessary to acknowledge the lives lost, incidents of violence, injustices of failed investigations, sham legal proceedings and lenient sentences.
