We are troubled by the continued barrage of black civilian shootings by law enforcement officers as well as the host of police shootings that have shook this country to its core. The purpose of the “I am A Solution” Town Hall Meeting & Legal Solutions Roundtable is to allow community members to voice their concerns, and then begin a discussion of real legal and legislative solutions that can stop the violence.
