Apr 1, 2015

  

What changes will come from the DOJ’s damning Ferguson report? On the April 1st edition of  Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice by discussing the responses to the DOJ's explosive report that found discriminatory practices by police, city and courts against African Americans. The report triggered the resignation of Ferguson’s police chief and city manager. What do residents think of the findings and how have Ferguson police responded? What do you make of the findings and their larger implications? It’s Your Call with me, Rose Aguilar, and you. 

Guests:

Ella Jones, long-time Ferguson resident and candidate for city council

Christopher Bridges, civil rights advocate and attorney with the Equal Justice Society
