Sunday, April 25, 2021 • 2pm–4pm • Stream Virtual Forum Live
Black men are especially vulnerable to traffic stops and interactions that can lead to arrest and sometimes death in police custody. The events of the past few years leading to George Floyd’s death and, recently, an active-duty soldier’s arrest ignited a conversation about police treatment of black men.
Similarly, the rate of incarceration is significantly higher among black men compared to their white peers. Vermont’s overall incarceration rate is among the lowest in the country, but its rate of incarceration for Black men is among the highest.
Please join us for a virtual forum on Sunday, April 25 at 2. The event will feature the lived experiences of four Black men in Vermont, Jason “Jayk” Brown, Shawn Pratt, Marion “Ghost” Russell, and Raymond “Tee Tee” Moore. Panelists will discuss their experiences with policing and incarceration. This event is the first of a mini-series.
