Thurgood Marshall Law Society and Dayton and Montgomery County Black Elected Officials will sponsor the next in a series of community forums titled “Moving From Words to Action”. The forum, “Reducing Inequality and Disparate Impact in the Justice System From A to Z” will take place on Thursday, June 4, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. to 8: 30 p.m at Central State University-Dayton Campus, 840 Germantown Street, Dayton.
The June 4th forum will address inequalities and disparate impact in our justice system including, but not limited to, policing, grand juries, indictments, prosecutorial discretion, plea bargaining, jury selection, verdicts, sentencing, and re-entry.
