The goal of the series is to use the resources of six colleges in Oneida & Herkimer Counties to shed light on the complex issues related to racial equity and criminal justice reform. This series together with a public opinion survey of resident evaluation and experience of the local criminal justice system and interviews with criminal justice officials will form the basis of a detailed agenda to be presented to area governments in advance of Governor Cuomo’s April 1, 2021, deadline for law enforcement reform.
Each lecture will begin with one, 20-minute presentation and two 10- minute responses followed by 25 minutes of student discussion and 25 minutes of Q and A from other public platforms. Each lecture will be on a Wednesday evening from 7:00 - 8:30pm, with the first hour broadcast on WPNY (Spectrum Channel 12).
These lectures are designed to be broadcast on both TV and the internet. Each lecture or panel discussion will include ample time for feedback and Q and A through a chat function.
