LET'S TALK | BRIDGING THE DIVIDE - LMPD Traffic Stops: A Panel Discussion

First Floor Gallery Access: 5 – 6 pm / Session 6 – 7 pm
Recent traffic stops have come under increased scrutiny after claims that the practice has lead to unequal treatment for minorities. Most recently an 18-year old stopped for making a wide turn was removed from his vehicle, frisked and, handcuffed for a period of time - the video of this traffic stop has been circulated widely. The new policies just announced by LMPD may help move us forward as a community feeling there is one Louisville, and not two.

Panelists include LMPD Police Chief Steve Conrad, Urban League President Sadiqa Reynolds, and Metro Council President David James.

Invited Guests: Tae-Ahn Lea and his mother, Tija Jackson

The Program is offered free of charge thanks to the generosity of Eileen and Mac Brown.

This program is presented in partnership with Lean into Louisville
