About this Event

Community thought-leaders come together to discuss issues and topics in our community in the new Conversations in Color Series presented by Uniting Bridges, Converge Radio, and Pablo Center. Episodes will be live streamed on Pablo Center's streaming platform and aired on Converge Radio.  From social reform to real-life navigation of race issues, this series offers weekly sessions diving into the history and future of our community with moderators Dr. Selika Ducksworth-Lawton and Ed Hudgins along with a panel of special guests and experts. The audience will also have an opportunity to share your questions, and join in the conversation.

This week, we'll focus on the idea of "Defund the Police," it's merit, it's drawbacks, it's applicability, and what to do with it going forward. Our panelists will be Sheriff Ron Cramer (EC County) and Chief Eric Atkinson (Menomonie PD).
