WCSU president calls for forums, more action on race and justice

West Conn President John Clark says there's an exceptionally strong feeling in the university community that while talk has its place, action must be taken to stop racism and its consequences.  Clark says there are several possible actions to take.  One includes creating a scholarship fund for students of color who wish to become police officers so law enforcement agencies better reflect the community, and to host lectures, podcasts, discussions, or conduct educational forums.  A few years ago a forum was held entitled “Race, Community, Policing and You – a Conversation to Make a Difference” featuring Danbury Chief of Police Patrick Ridenhour, a State Police representative, West Conn Police Chief Roger Connor, faculty, students and community members.
