Recent incidents of SOMA residents calling the police on perceived suspicious activity, the police response, and the social media responses will be the topic of the South Orange/ Maplewood Community Coalition on Race sponsored Coffee House Discussion entitled When Should I Call the Police? This community roundtable discussion in small groups will explore issues such as: what should prompt someone to call for police; racist assumptions about people that cause suspicions; use of social media to shame people—both those who call the police and those who question the motives of the callers; use of social media to post surveillance footage and photos related to these calls; and more.
Thursday, September 19, 2019, 7:30 - 9:30 PM at the Woodland parlor, Maplewood NJ.
