Reimagining Policing Panel Discussion – WEBINAR

Dear neighbors:

ANC Commissioners from across the District will host a virtual Town Hall conversation on “Reimagining Policing in the District of Columbia” this Saturday, July 18, 10:30 am–12:00 pm. The public is invited to attend.

The forum will be a moderated panel discussion with representatives of the Metropolitan Police Department, NAACP-DC Chapter, Councilmembers Charles Allen and Robert White, and The Guardian Angels. We have also extended invitations to the Mayor’s Office and Black Lives Matter-DC.

Panelists will respond to questions generated out of a virtual ANC Commissioners-only conversation with nearly 50 Commissioners last Friday as well as questions submitted from audience members during the event. You can still submit questions by sending an email to 6b08@anc.dc.gov. Dr. Sharita Thompson, professor of African and African American Studies at Gettysburg College, and Dr. Bernard Demczuk, of George Washington University, will moderate the discussion, which follows an ANC Commissioners-only conversation we held last week in preparation for this event.

The policing forums are an outgrowth of weekly online meetings to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on communities that were initially convened in March by Chander Jayaraman, Vice-Chair of ANC 6B on Capitol Hill. At those meetings, Commissioners across the District gathered information and ideas from their Single Member Districts to share with each other and with city officials.
