The Red and Blue Exchange, the SNF Paideia Program, and the Quattrone Center are hosting, “Is Police Reform Possible? Police Commissioner Perspectives.”

The panel discussion, moderated by WHYY journalist Dave Davies of NPR’s Fresh Air, will feature former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.

Penn students, faculty, staff, and alumni who are interested in a post-event discussion are invited to join us for an active dialogue.

TableTalk Penn is a student-run organization dedicated to fostering meaningful conversations on a wide range of topics between members of the Penn community that would have never otherwise met. At TableTalk Penn events, facilitators guide small discussion groups about a chosen topic by asking thought-provoking questions. TableTalk Penn is committed to allowing participants to share their unique perspectives on issues in an open forum in which students can learn with, grow from, and understand one another. TableTalk Penn hopes to continue the conversation on the Police Reform panel discussion and offer attendees with an opportunity to discuss their own ideas.

The Red and Blue Exchange is a new initiative on the Penn campus with a mission to promote civil dialogue and viewpoint diversity. It is a program of the SNF Paideia Program, which provides curricular and co-curricular opportunities for all students to develop the knowledge, skills, and ethical frameworks necessary to be informed, engaged, and effective community members, and to lead fulfilling and integrated personal, professional, and civic lives.

The conversation with former Philadelphia and D.C. Metro Commissioner Charles Ramsey and Baltimore Commissioner Michael Harrison is co-sponsored by the Quattrone Center of the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School and the Red and Blue Exchange, an initiative of Penn’s SNF Paideia Program.

This police reform program is made possible by the generosity of the Gamba Family.

Registration is required.

This event is open to members of the Penn community. Please use your Penn email address when registering so that we can confirm your Penn affiliation.
