On Aug. 17, the Center for Policing Equity, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and UC Irvine School of Law are hosting a virtual event “From Police Reform to a New Public Safety Model.”

The event will feature discussion on a number of important topics relating to police reform and features Vanita Gupta, president and chief executive officer of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Monica Bell of Yale Law School, Barry Friedman of NYU School of Law, Phillip Atiba Goff of the Center for Policing Equity and Yale University, Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Dean L. Song Richardson of UC Irvine School of Law and Tom Tyler of Yale Law School.

From the event description:

With grave racial disparities in the COVID-19 pandemic and a global spotlight on race and policing in the United States, America’s civil unrest has reached new levels of mobilization. In its wake, calls have shifted from “reform the police” to “defund police” and “reimagine public safety.” As we welcome this shift in mindset, at this live-streamed event, legal scholars will seek to answer the question: “What are our best strategies toward redesigning, funding, and implementing a new public safety model?”
