IAH Zoom Talks, a virtual talk series featuring discussions during the COVID-19 crisis, will present “Where Do We Go From Here: What Can Each of Us Do to Create a More Perfect Union? with Karol V. Mason, president, John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

What role can and should each of us play in helping move the country, our own communities, forward through these crises? As others have said, the only unacceptable options are silence or violence. Let’s have a real conversation about where we go from here. How do we use this opportunity so that 50 years from now, we are not repeating this same cycle of inequality?
