We talked racial inequities, now what? – Kaleia Martin and Allison De Marco

On July 11 more than 300 people attended a community discussion at the United Church of Chapel Hill about the murders by police of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the killings of the Dallas police officers. Many people expressed sadness, anger, and fear around the frequency of these events and the threat of future ones. Prominent community leaders were present including Chapel Hill Police Chief Chris Blue who addressed questions and concerns. There was a realization that more focused work needs to be done around racial inequities to ensure that our community does not become the site for such tragic events.
