New York City has a long history of grappling with issues of crime, public safety, and the police. Although these topics have taken on new meaning throughout the decades, at their core, they are far from new. In this event, we will be joined by Elizabeth Glazer, Director of the NYC Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice. Together, we will look at the history of police reform in New York City to understand the context behind this summer's protests and subsequent demands for change. We will learn what has been successful in New York City's past, what has fallen short, and how history can contextualize our current moment and inform the path forward.

Presented as part of our ongoing commitment to Identity, Diversity, Belonging, and Equity within the Wagner community, at NYU, and in the communities we serve. Learn more about IDBE resources and engagement here.
