This convening, co-sponsored the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center and the Northeastern University School of Law's Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project, will focus on the loved ones of those killed by law enforcement from 1930 to 1955 in the four states with the highest concentration of killings:  Alabama, Georgia, Lousiana, and Mississippi. We will examine a history that was close to erasure and discuss methods for reparations.  Together with police chiefs, we will examine actions necessary to acknowledge the lives lost, incidents of violence, injustices of failed investigations, sham legal proceedings, and lenient sentences.
