LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD - The Impact of Community and Police Interactions on Individual Civil Rights in Missouri

As the Chair of the Missouri Advisory Committee (MOSAC) to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, I would like to invite you to participate in a public meeting on February 23, 2015 and spread the word.  

MOSAC is one of fifty committees tasked with investigating and providing a report to the United States Commission on Civil Rights on issues that need further examination and action.  Given the events in Ferguson, MO and the widening gap of trust between communities of color and law enforcement often, but not exclusively, based around the use of force, the Committee will be holding a public meeting to hear testimony from various stakeholders – academics, government officials, community organizations, and the public.    

TOPIC:                 The Impact of Community and Police Interactions on Individual Civil Rights in Missouri

WHEN:                MONDAY, FEBRURAY 23. 2015

WHERE:              J.C. Penny Conference Center Auditorium
University of Missouri St. Louis, 1 University Drive
St. Louis, MO 63121

TIME:                  8:00 A.M. – 5:30 P.M.

For those who are unable to attend, there will be a comment period following the meeting for individuals to submit testimony.  I hope that you will be able to join us and I ask that you share this information with those who are interested.  The Press Release for the event can be found here (
