The Urban Poverty Forum is an annual educational event that brings speakers together around a common theme: to open a dialogue about the systemic issues surrounding urban poverty. Unite with a diverse and caring community including faith-based organizations, non-profits, and concerned citizens in addressing problems faced by the poorest among us. Join community leaders in a panel discussion on the successes, challenges and perceptions around police de-escalation tactics. The event includes creative performances by members of The Mahogany Project.
Panelists include: The Reverend Harriett Walden of Mothers for Police Accountability, Educator and former candidate for State Superintendent Erin Jones, SPD Crime Prevention Coordinator Felicia Cross, and Chester Earl of Justice For Jackie. Real Change staff reporter Lisa Edge will moderate the event.
Presented by Town Hall Seattle and Real Change as part of the Civics series.
