The ACLU of Lane County's "Civil Conversation" series presents a discussion on:
Eugene Police Department's Policy on Biased Conduct
August 14, 5:30-6:45 PM
Eugene Public Library, Tykeson Room, 100 W. 10th Ave.
Featured Speakers: Juan Carlos Valle, Council President, LULAC of Lane County, and Police Commission member; Eric Richardson, President, NAACP Eugene Springfield
The Eugene Police Department has developed a policy to prevent bias-based profiling by "provid[ing] equal protection under the law to the people we contact and provide it fairly and without discrimination toward any individual or group." Under this policy, officers will be trained and demographic information will be collected on citizens stopped by the police. The policy is laudable, but groups who have experienced biased policing have concerns about the development and execution of the project. Join us for a discussion of these concerns.
This event is free and open to the public. You are welcome to bring food and drink.
Please forward this announcement, as appropriate, to other organizations and people.
