Civic Cocktail: Race and Policing
12/1/201658:22

In a special edition of Civic Cocktail, host Joni Balter moderates a panel discussion examining the intersection of policing and race. How are community members and law enforcement tackling the challenges of racial bias and police reform? What about recommendations to change state law on police use of deadly force? How is the state changing its approach to police training?

Panelists Augustine Cita, Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle; Sue Rahr, Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission; and Andre Taylor, police reform advocate; weigh in.

Journalists Enrique Cerna, of KCTS 9, and Reagan Jackson, of The Seattle Globalist and South Seattle Emerald, join the discussion.
