Please join us on Saturday, January 22, 2022 (9 AM to 1 PM) to examine the history of racism in law enforcement in the United States. Our presenter, Jeff Reese, will discuss the origins of the problem and how we got where we are today. Reese will lead us in seeking A Way Forward to dismantle institutional racism and mass incarceration.
During his 26 year career with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Jeff Reese worked as a hostage negotiator, suicide counselor, certified Mental Health Peace Officer, state certified law enforcement instructor and a front-line supervisor. After retiring from the Sheriff’s Office, he joined the Houston Peace & Justice Center (HPJC) and the Greater Houston Coalition for Justice. For the past three years, he served as president of the HPJC.
