Come join us Tuesday, October 17 at 11 A.M. for “Suspect Race—Causes and Consequences of Racial Profiling,” a presentation by Jack Glaser, PhD, followed by a luncheon.
This event is free. RSVP as soon as possible to email@example.com to reserve a space.
Jack Glaser is a social psychologist whose primary focus is stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination, and hate crimes. A professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, he researches the unconscious operation of stereotypes and prejudice, and is investigating the implications of bias in law enforcement. Psychological science overwhelmingly demonstrates that Americans, including police officers, implicitly associate Black people with weapons, crime, and aggression. Resulting disparities are documented most disturbingly in police use of lethal force.
Professor Glaser is working with the Center for Policing Equity as one of the principal investigators on a project to build a National Justice Database of police stops and use of force incidents. His 2014 book, Suspect Race, focuses on racial profiling and the psychology of stereotyping.
There will be a Q & A session and lunch following the presentation.
