Who Is Policing the Police?

  • Thursday, April 21, 2022
    4 PM ET
  • Online on Zoom

This program will explore what real police accountability looks like and include the voices of current and former law enforcement officers, activists, and academics to ask the question: Who is policing the police? 

Cosponsored by Harvard Generational African American Students Association, a student-run organization whose mission is twofold: to foster community among students identifying as generational African Americans, the larger Black community, and Harvard University as a whole, and to raise awareness and spark social change on issues pertaining to the heinous legacy of slavery in the United States.
