Governing in Crisis: Police Reform and Broader Issues of Systemic Racism

Since the killing of George Floyd by officers of the Minneapolis Police Department, the entire nation has seen protests targeting not only policing practices but broader issues of systemic racism. State and local governments throughout the country have been considering, and in some cases implementing, changes to the policies and practices governing the mission and methods of law enforcement.

Pennsylvania State Representative Jake Wheatley is a member of the Working Group on Police Reform in Harrisburg. Rep. Wheatley will discuss not only those focused reform efforts but also the broader impact of systemic racism in such critical areas as education, healthcare and economic opportunity.
