Student Activities & Involvement presents Let’s Talk About: Law Enforcement Accountability

In an increasingly connected and diverse world, the art of conversation and civil discourse is becoming vital. Join us as we explore how to tackle these difficult conversations with opposing viewpoints. This session will feature an interactive talk as well as guided small group discussions focused on how we react to opposing viewpoints and the implications. Panelists include: Retired Captain William Halvosa from the City of Gainesville, Director James Lawrence from Gainesville for All, Professor Kenneth Nunn from the Levin College of Law, and Sergeant Scott Silver from the University Police Department.

Wednesday, March 18, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
