Your Call: Improving police and community relations: Is poverty the real issue?
Is increased economic opportunity the key to better relations between police and communities of color? On the February 25th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice by discussing the connection between policing and economic opportunity. How does the lack of opportunity drive confrontations between police and citizens – and how does our approach to crime and punishment undermine opportunity in already-challenged neighborhoods? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
