POLICE VIOLENCE: Global and Local Perspectives

Virtual Symposium – Dartmouth College

April 5–11, 2021

This week-long, international symposium, comprised of 54 artists, activists, alumni, students and scholars, draws its inspiration from the United Nations resolution (43/1). Adopted by its Human Rights Council on June 19, 2020, the resolution calls for the "promotion and protection of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of Africans and of people of African descent against excessive use of force and other human rights violations by law enforcement officers." This multifaceted event, convened by a campus-wide Dartmouth collective, explores this complex, difficult and urgent issue through a series of discussions, art exhibits, and films.

This event is free, but registration is required. 

Once you register, you will receive links to the symposium sessions on the confirmation page.
