Our January Circles of Voices will host Major Neill Franklin, a thirty-four year law enforcement veteran of the Maryland State Police and Baltimore Police Department. He is the current Executive Director for a prominent criminal justice reform organization, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), and his work focuses on drug policy reform.
Major Franklin has presented before an array of audiences, from local community colleges to lecture rooms at Harvard to the Senate on Capitol Hill. He has become a regular guest on Al Jazeera, CNN, and MSNBC, and his writings have been printed in the LA Times, Washington Post, and New York Times. He is one of the most sought after drug policy reform public speakers in the United States.
J.C. Faulk and Verna Myers will facilitate a conversation around the impact of race based drug policies, and work with Neill Franklin to convey possible solutions that will end the war on drugs that has devastated millions of people in the United States.
Join us on Saturday, January 7th from 6-9pm at the Impact Hub for this thought provoking conversation. Feel free to invite family, friends, and colleagues and make sure to reserve a seat using our Eventbrite link. Bring food and/or drink to share. See you there!
