Cleveland Mayoral candidates’ forum on criminal justice reform and the Consent Decree
Thursday, June 24th, 2021 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Case Western Reserve Law School and the volunteer Commissioners of the Cleveland Police Commission
In a time when many communities across the country are grappling with the need for police reform, voters want to be informed on local political candidates’ positions on police reform. This forum sponsored by the Cleveland Community Police Commission and Case Western Reserve University School of Law will provide the candidates for Mayor of the City of Cleveland an opportunity to share their ideas on police reform with community members. Candidates will be asked questions how they envision the Cleveland Division of Police can best serve the needs of the community, in particular youth and black and brown residents. They will be asked questions regarding their views on police-community relations, the Consent Decree, how well police reforms are working in Cleveland, and what more they believe should be done. All Mayoral candidates have been invited to participate in the forum.
