Perspectives on Police Violence

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion in partnership with Africana Studies, Anthropology and Sociology, American Studies, Political Science and the Office of Campus Safety organized a panel discussion titled, “Perspectives on Police Violence” on Thursday Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. in the Geneva Room. 

Panelists included: Advocacy Program Manager from the Center for Constitutional Rights Nahal Zamani; Founder of the Law Enforcement Psychological Associates Jay Supnick, who is a clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry; and Assistant Professor of History at HWS Janette Gayle. Associate Professor of Political Science Paul Passavant moderated the discussion.

“This offers an opportunity for the campus to engage in a dialogue about police bias and violence and for the campus community to participate in this national conversation particularly around a time of heightened race relations,” said Solomé Rose, interim chief diversity officer at HWS, prior to the talk.

The entire Geneva and HWS community was invited.
