Queens I Am A Solution

On Saturday, January 21, MBBA hosted our third “I am A Solution” Town Hall Meeting & Legal Solutions Roundtable: Queens Edition.  During this program, we discussed legal and legislative reforms to reduce the number of unarmed civilian deaths caused by law enforcement officers.  As we enter 2017, many are concerned that the civil rights we have worked so hard to achieve will be rolled back – especially as they relate to the criminal justice system.  At our “I am A Solution” program, we reached out to members of the Queens community and heard their stories, before pivoting to a reform-oriented discussion aimed at reducing the violence
