The State of Race, Police Brutality and Gun Violence in America

George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many victims have died because of police brutality and gun violence. The surge in police brutality and gun violence against the Black population recently led all people to come together to peacefully march against these tragedies. This moderated discussion will bring together elected officials, victims, law enforcement, policy makers, and advocacy organizations to discuss the state of race, police brutality, and gun violence in America. How do we navigate the continued violence and what solutions are available to decrease the issue?
