Join us for a discussion on the intersecting nature of policing, poverty, and race as we listen to Karen Dolan of the Institute for Policy Studies share her research. William Penn House is thrilled to invite Karen Dolan back after she moderated our conversation with Rev. David Billings on Undoing Racism last November about his book Deep Denial.

Being located in one of the most heavily policed cities in the United States, we at William Penn House believe conversations like this can help to better understand how the violence of policing disproportionately affects communities already economically and racially marginalized. We hope you will join us for this important dialogue.

As usual, friends will gather at 6:30pm and are encouraged to bring a dish to share. See you then!
