One thought on “Racial Justice Coalition Town Hall 3/4/20

  1. The deadly shooting last month of Mr. Mike Ramos by Austin police, following closely on the publication of reports affirming a culture of racism within the police department, patterns of racial profiling in policing, and a fear of retaliation against those who report it, require us to call for new leadership over public safety.
