Join us for a powerful and emotional conversation with fathers of children murdered at the hands of the police. Hear how they navigate a criminal justice institution that too often views them as criminal. What are the realities that fathers face in the wake of “justifiable homicides” of their own children? And how are these fathers contributing to the movement for freedom and justice today? These questions and more will be explored in this panel.
