  • Annual ACLU Chapter Dinner & Discussion

    We invite you to our Annual Dinner and Discussion on "Police Accountability to the Communities They Serve."

     

    Over the last year, and especially following the police-involved death of Baltimore's Freddie Gray, people in Maryland and the nation have been awakening to the cry for justice coming from communities whose trust in law enforcement has been shattered by police abuse, discrimination and misconduct, as well as the failure of our justice system to hold police accountable.

     

    Guest speakers include:

     

    - Del. Alonzo Washington (D-Prince George's) -- sponsor of House Bill 954, which will require police departments to report to the state civilian deaths as a result of a police encounter.

     

    - Marion Gray-Hopkins -- mother of Gary Hopkins, who was killed during a police encounter in Prince George's County in 1999; advocate for police accountability reform.

     

    - Toni Holness -- Public Policy Associate, ACLU of Maryland
    Please feel free to invite your friends, family and allies!

     

    Co-hosted by the Prince George's and Montgomery County Chapters of the ACLU of Maryland.
