    Community Meeting on MCSO Reform

    This is the first update from the MCSO’s Independent Monitor since Sheriff Joe Arpaio was voted out of office. Somos America and the Community Advisory Board are helping to promote this event. We want to encourage as many individuals and community leaders to come as possible. Events like these are how we can communicate the concerns from Arizona families and vulnerable populations to our law enforcement agencies, and learn what improvements they are already working towards to keep us safe while respecting our individual dignity and civil rights.

     

    Spanish translation will be available.

     

    RSVP on Facebook.
