Virtual Town Hall: Racism In The Military Justice System
June 2017: Protect Our Defenders, a nonprofit advocacy group, releases a study on racial disparity in the military justice system. Among the findings:
“Military leadership has been aware of significant racial disparity in its justice process for years, and has made no apparent effort to find the cause of the disparity or remedy it.”
June 2020: The top legal officers for all four military services told a Congressional hearing that it will take a lot of work to eradicate these racial disparities.
Tonight at 5: Join KPCC/LAist's Robert Garrova and a panel of experts for a town hall taking a closer look at where we are with this important issue and the plans to address it. Watch live at the top of this story.
