March Forum: Law Enforcement in El Paso: The Use of Lethal Force by the Police

Join us on Sunday, March 25 at 2:30 in the El Paso Public Library downtown, 501 N. Oregon.

Enrique Moreno, well known El Paso civil rights attorney and community leader will speak about an important subject--the over zealous use of lethal force by police.

In recent years the recurring use of excessive force by the police has become a national concern.  Most of the media coverage has been concentrated on African American communities, but Mexican Americans and other Hispanic groups in the Southwest, including in El Paso, have also been impacted by police misconduct, as have individuals suffering from mental illness episodes.  Mr. Moreno will highlight local cases that bring El Paso into the national conversation.
