Race + Justice + Jasiri X


On Friday, June 14, The Atlantic will host Race + Justice: Pittsburgh to discuss the area’s criminal justice system. Atlantic journalists Ron Brownstein and Adrienne Green will interview several key leaders, including: 

Scott Schubert, chief of police for the city of Pittsburgh, who will explore the future of law enforcement

Summer Lee, the state representative for part of Allegheny County, who will discuss efforts to reform the criminal justice system at the state level

Jasiri X, co-founder of 1Hood Media, who will share how art and media can help create change.

Across the morning, these speakers and more will also discuss the city’s reaction to recent pivotal events, such as the killing of Antwon Rose Jr. in East Pittsburgh and the massacre last fall at the Tree of Life Synagogue.
