Political protests occurred in 114 countries in 2019, and the United States emerged as an epicenter for these protests after the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May, 2020. Protestors have called for reforming policing as part of the larger effort to address systemic racism in American law and society. Our panelists will offer their perspectives on this historic moment that raises profound constitutional questions about the role of policing in a democratic society.
The event is held in association with the College of Liberal Arts’ University Forum lecture series
and is co-sponsored by the Executive Vice President and Provost, William S. Boyd School of Law, the departments of History and Political Science, and the Nevada Center for Civic Engagement.
