Pain & Power Part II: Tackling Police Violence in Atlanta
February 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Please join the Southern Center for Human Rights on Thursday February 22, 2024 at 6:00 PM at the Auburn Avenue Research Library for Pain & Power Part II: Tackling Police Violence in Atlanta.
In August 2023, we welcomed Samuel Sinyangwe, a renowned data scientist and co-founder of Campaign Zero, Mapping Police Violence, and The Police Scorecard, as our keynote speaker at Pain & Power Part I. His notable contributions to countering police violence reflect our larger commitment to data-driven solutions. Because we believe the people closest to problems are also closest to the solutions, Atlanta residents participated in our Community Safety & Police Violence project over the last year and offered solutions directly to elected officials as community experts. Because of Samuel’s research, we now know that 2023 was one of the deadliest years on record for police violence.
Pain & Power Part II will feature the mini-documentary we commissioned about the project, followed by a lawmaker panel and community talk-back about what change is possible right now. This is our effort to provide a brave space for lawmakers and community members to discuss the implementation of practical policy solutions.
We’ll begin the evening with a light reception at 6:00 PM and programming will immediately follow at 6:30 PM.
