On Thurs. July 16, 2020, SJFVC’s Rabiah Rahman joined the “Policing & Racial Justice: A Community Dialogue for Ventura County” put on by Indivisible Conejo. Community members talk back to Ventura County law enforcement about racial profiling, school resource officers, changing youth attitudes toward policing, and needed reforms. And our cops will listen and respond in real time. Please join us for this important conversation! (Rabiah Starts: 1:14:03, Ends: 1:24:12)
