Public Agenda’s Hidden Common Ground on Race and Police Reform examined public opinion on many of the most pressing questions prompted by the tragic murder of George Floyd and the ensuing protests, including policing bias, use of force, and militarization as well as how policing fits into the priorities of communities and the broader effects of racism in society. This webinar addresses the scientific evidence behind these questions with a particular focus on the downstream impacts and lived experiences of marginalized and underrepresented communities who are often disproportionately affected by these issues. This webinar, hosted by Public Agenda, was developed in partnership with ICMA.
