Safety and Justice

After falling steadily for decades, the rate of violent crime in the United States rose again in 2016. Many Americans are concerned something is going on with violence in communities, law enforcement, and race that is undermining the national ideals of safety and justice for all. How should communities like Seattle or even here at the UW increase safety while at the same time ensuring justice? In this community forum, citizens will come together to discuss and deliberate three different options for solving this problem: enforcing the law together, applying the law fairly, and de-escalating and preventing violence.

Come join a UW student-facilitated discussion on policing, race, and violence using the new NIFI discussion guide Safety and Justice: How Should Communities Reduce Violence?
