The Center for Urban Research and Education (CURE) will begin its fall seminar series on Thursday, September 10, with a virtual webinar/discussion on “Police, Policing, and Police Reform: Implications for the Future of our Cities.” This event is informed by the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent national and international outrage and protests, including the call for an end to police violence, the abolition of unjust and unfair police practices, and defunding and/or reforming the police. 

Panelists include Dr. Michael Fortner, Professor of Political Science at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City; Dr. Kayla Preito-Hodge, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Rutgers–Camden; Ms Shaneka Boucher, Councilwoman for Camden City Council and a Camden resident; and Ms. Ivonne Roman, a public affairs doctoral student and a retired police captain. Dr. Stephen Danley, Associate Professor of Public Policy and Administration at Rutgers–Camden, and a Camden resident, will moderate. 

To join this event, please register. The event will begin at 12:30 p.m. There will be time for a question and answer session, as well.
