Peace Family, 

Please join us on Saturday, April 10th at 10:00 AM for the next TRHT Ubuntu Circle (to be repeated on April 13th at 6:00 PM). Our focus will be on police accountability, an issue of importance to Black communities across the nation.   

Our featured guest will be Arewa Karen Winters, a leader, and change-maker who is on the frontlines of the fight for police accountability in Chicago. She is the Administrative Coordinator for the United Congress for Community and Religious Organizations, a TRHT Racial Healing Practitioner, and the first-ever Co-chair of the Chicago Police Department (CPD) Use of Force Working Group. 

This conversation is especially timely as the eyes of the world are cast on Minneapolis where former police officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for the murder of George Floyd. We recognize that what happened in Minneapolis is part of a systemic problem of police brutality and excessive force that disproportionately impacts our community. Black people are 2.5x more likely than whites to be killed by police. And 99% of killings by police between 2013 and 2019 have not resulted in officers being charged with a crime. What do you imagine for the future of policing in our community?

Mark your calendars, jot down your questions, and bring your ideas. Let us know which circle you’ll be attending by clicking here.
