Watch the replay of our March 18, 2021 Community Learning Series webinar with Dr. Jeannine Bell, “Mining the Trust Gap: Protest and American’s Views of Police Behavior.”
About the Session
Despite the protests in the summer of 2020, there remains a race-based gap in the trust that Americans have regarding the police. This presentation explores some of the reasons for this trust gap and discusses police procedures that might restore trust in the police for Americans of all racial backgrounds.
