Leesburg, VA, 2016 – The Community Engagement Coalition (CEC), a community focused organization based in Loudoun County, in conjunction with the Loudoun NAACP Legal Redress Committee will be hosting a town hall discussion on building relationships with local authorities to combat police brutality and reform our county criminal justice.
This free event will take place at Tuscarora High School on October 5, 2016 at 6:30 p.m., and features panelists from our local law enforcement and criminal justice community. Confirmed speakers include: Gregory Brown, Michael Chapman, Jim Plowman, Victor Leon Powell and Phyllis Randall.
The focus of the discussion is on bridging the gap between law enforcement and the Loudoun/Leesburg community. Topics of discussion include use of force, gun violence, officer grievance/complaint procedures, community-based policing, and other questions or concerns. “This event will provide the community an opportunity to ask questions about police training, hiring practices, and plans for improvement while allowing our local authorities to share best practices” said CEC member Felicia Thorpe of Ashburn.
Voter registration will be available on-site.
