The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on June 10, 2020 entitled Oversight Hearing on Policing Practices and Law Enforcement Accountability. We’ll hear from some of the witnesses, including: Vanita Gupta, President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights; Paul Butler, Albert Brick Professor in Law at Georgetown University Law Center; and Professor Phillip Atiba Goff, PhD, the inaugural Franklin A. Thomas Professor in Policing Equity at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and co-founder and president of the Center for Policing Equity.
