"Hands up, Don't Shoot."

Recently, nationwide protests, vigils, “die ins” and marches in Canada and the U.S. have escalated dialogue about racial profiling and police brutality. More generally, there has been a focus on how the criminal justice system — beginning with the police — interacts with the Black community. The Canadian Association of Black Lawyers invites you to a panel discussion with criminal justice, policing and community response experts who will talk about these issues in the Canadian context.

A reception will follow.
