Past Harms, Present Remedies: Law Enforcement and Families Affected by Historical Police Violence in Conversation

The Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project (CRRJ) at Northeastern University School of Law is convening a public gathering in New Orleans on Saturday, October 20, 2018, at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law to talk about the impact of deaths at the hands of police in the mid-twentieth century on today’s initiatives to improve police accountability and police-community relations. The gathering will explore the nature and legacy of historical police violence in Louisiana and elsewhere.

Families and communities of African Americans killed because of the actions of law enforcement officers will be present, calling for recognition and repair from local police departments and other government leaders.

As CRRJ director and law professor Margaret Burnham said “the determined efforts of these families to recover these cases are an important part of the national initiative to come to terms with historical injustices and to learn from these legal and moral failures.”

Participants will discuss what can be done to honor the victims of these state-sponsored injustices, find pathways to meaningful accountability and closure, and connect their experiences with current dialogues about effective policing and community safety.

“More fully accounting for past police violence can be critical in fostering relationships of trust and safety in the future,” said Professor of Law Andrea Armstrong.
