Topic: Reckoning with Race After George Floyd
The starting point: The June 2020 murder of George Floyd by a white policeman in Minneapolis, MN, which led to the largest protests in US history: between 7 and 20 million people in 2,500 towns and cities. There was a national outcry for racial justice, followed by a national reckoning on race. What has changed in the last 18 months?
Sue Headlee, Denise Snyder, and Bill Kincaid will lead the discussion.
-Have your personal views changed since all the protests and debates?
-What has been achieved on racial equity since the protests? What kind of backlash has occurred?
-What are the pros and cons of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act? the pros and cons of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act?
