This week, Future Now convened state lawmakers from across the country for a critical conversation on how lawmakers can address police reform in their states as one step in dismantling structural racism. We were joined by experts, Dr. Tracie Keesee of the Center for Policing Equity and Sam Sinyangwe of Campaign Zero and Mapping Police Violence, as well as leading lawmakers, Senator Nikema Williams of Georgia, Delegate Josh Cole of Virginia, and Representative Garnet Coleman of Texas who sponsored his state’s Sandra Bland Act. We’re grateful to share with you the experiences, actions, and policy solutions from black leaders on the front lines of state policy change. Hear from Senator Nikema Williams and Delegate Josh Cole as they recount their experiences from the past week. And listen to the full call here.
