The Leadership Academy, Criminal Justice club and African American Students Association present, “Death of Silence” a panel discussion to find active solutions to end racial discrimination in the criminal justice system.
“We want this event to focus on forward thinking solutions,” said Anthony Smith, president of Leadership Academy. “We want to make an impact hoping to get feedback from professors and panelists.”
According to Smith, the panel was created from the Travoyn Martin case and recent cases involving race.
“Some topics may include how to respond to racial profiling by authorities, how to respond to racial slurs or stereotypes and what are citizens legal rights during police confrontations,” said Smith.
The panel is scheduled for Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. on Clarkston in the JCLRC auditorium.
