“CAN THEY SEE US?” A PANEL DISCUSSION WITH LEADING SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT LEADERS
September 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDTFree
You are cordially invited to a HAPPENING this Thursday, September 3, 2020 at 6:30 PM for a panel discussion titled “Can They See Mercy,” an in-depth discussion between prominent South Florida legal and law enforcement leaders based on two impactful recent movies. “Just Mercy” and “Can They See Us.” Register online at www.WDFJBA.org.
Although the events from both films take place in the 1980s, the themes of these stories are still prevalent. Criminalization and inequality, racial bias, power and positionality, rights and justice, and humanity are issues that minority communities, especially the Black community struggle with at the hands of law enforcement and the legal system.
