Ferguson, Fruitvale, and Beyond: How to Hold Police Accountable?
Rashidah Grinage
March 26, 2015
11:45 am to 12:40 pm
Cowell 106

As a result of a devastating family tragedy involving Oakland police, Rashidah Grinage joined PUEBLO (People United for a Better Life in Oakland) in 1994 to work on addressing police brutality and misconduct and to call for increased accountability. Now, a founder of the Coalition for Police Accountability, she continues to organize the Oakland community to redress grievances and provide independent, credible oversight of law enforcement.

In this talk Rashidah will discuss the institutional barriers at the Federal, State and local levels that make it close to impossible for the victims of police misconduct to find justice. Included in the conversation must be the laws that provide a shield to law enforcement and the political power of police unions that have rendered elected leaders reluctant to legislate against their interests.
