This conversation will continue to deconstruct the solidarity & discord surrounding Akai Gurley and the Peter Liang trial and the ongoing movement for justice for Akai Gurley and Black Lives Matter.

Itโ€™s been about 19 months since Akai Gurley was shot and killed while visiting the Pink Houses in East New York, Brooklyn by NYPD officer Peter Liang. In our discussion weโ€™ll start by hearing facts about Liangโ€™s conviction and trial process that led to his minimal sentencing, the key players that dictated that outcome and the responses seen throughout the city.

Weโ€™ll also open the discussion to what justice for Akai Gurley looks like. Whatโ€™s going on now? What are we doing as individuals, as a community?
