MPT Hosting a Conversation on Race and Policing

Maryland Public Television is hosting an hour-long town hall meeting Monday evening on race and policing. It will be simulcast on public radio station WYPR-FM (88.1) and will also be available for viewing on the MPT livestream at mpt.org/livestream.

MPT moderators Jeff Salkin and Charles Robinson will host advocates and experts, breaking the conversation down into three segments:

Where are we and what’s at stake?

— Finding solutions and turning protests into policy

— Police accountability
