In the wake of protests that have expanded across the country and world-wide, including here in the Tampa Bay area as a result of the death of Mr. George Floyd and a community outcry to address racism, excessive use of force by law enforcement, criminal and systematic reform and to ensure their voices are heard, Safe & Sound Hillsborough facilitated a “Community Conversation” to address possible solutions and/or topics for future conversations.
Issues in the forum were broken into 5 main components:
- Governmental Response
- Law Enforcement & Community
- Equality, Equity, Justice & Policy
- Beyond Arrest: Juvenile & Criminal Justice System
- Youth, Schools and Our Future
