Houston is admired for being one of the most diverse cities in America, but it is still one of the most segregated.

May 25: Policing and the Criminal Justice System: Disparities and Reform

Through his work as the chair of the MacArthur Foundation–funded Houston Racial/Ethnic Disparities Committee Data Workgroup, where he leads a research team in a multi-year, large-scale evaluation of the Houston Police Department Body Camera Program, Howard Henderson will discuss racial and ethnic disparities across the criminal justice system and policing in Houston. He will offer insights into addressing these disparities, enhancing communication, and engaging the community.
