Bryan Stevenson’s book, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, will be used to illuminate the role that creative expression can play in the connection between social challenges and the “miscarriage of justice.” Participants will discover art and creative expression as social tools for reflection, resistance, and activism.

How can we make sense of persistent racial disparities in police behavior in the absence of overt prejudice? Kimberly Burke offers insights into disparities in law enforcement from a social psychological perspective. Based on research from the Center for Policing Equity (CPE) and narratives based on her experience training police departments across the country, Burke will highlight the promises and limitations of a social psychological approach to police reform. Burke is a PhD student in Sociology at UC Berkeley and an affiliated researcher at CPE.
