Equality and Justice panel: Preview


A panel discussion titled “Is Equality and Justice for All?” will be held in the Krannert Room at Clowes Memorial Hall Feb. 26, beginning at 6 p.m.

This discussion will address issues such as racial profiling and police brutality that recently occurred in the United States.

The Desmond Tutu Center for Peace, Reconciliation, and Global Justice, Black Student Union, Demia and Christian Theological Seminary’s Black Student Caucus will host the event.

Panel participants include Douglas Hairston, minister and director of Mayor Ballard’s Front Porch Alliance; Dr. Terri Jett, ACLU Indiana Board president and associate professor of political science at Butler University; Judge David Shaheed, Superior Court judge for Marion County; and Robin Turner, former police officer and director of public safety for Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

A moderator will be present to ask five questions of the panelists, in which they have two minutes to respond. Then there will be an open forum for the audience to ask questions.
