What Would Marcus Garvey Do: Community Policing in the Black Lives Matter Era
Developed in partnership with the WSBA Civil Rights Law Section
Reverend Harriett G. Walden, Founder of Mothers for Police Accountability, National Director of the Silent War Campaign, 2020 WSBA Frances B. North Civic Leader Award and commissioner on the Community Police Commission (create by a federal consent decree in 2012 regarding unlawful use of force), will address the intersections of poverty, race, and education in our era's civil rights movement.
Reverend Walden has been appointed to and served on numerous task forces and commissions that involve efforts to improve and heal community-police relations and to achieve greater transparency and accountability in the criminal justice system. Reverend Walden will lecture on how structural classism challenges current civil rights work and provide an analysis on the Seattle Community Police Commission, formed by federal consent decree in 2012 in response to unlawful use of force. Lawyers should walk away with knowledge of the laws of community policing, community police advisory boards, and how to start asking the right questions about community health and safety.
It is an absolute honor for the Civil Rights Law Section to host a CLE for all of our members to listen in, strengthen critical analysis necessary for civil rights work, and stay up-to-date on local policy, police reform and accountability measures.
