ATLANTA, GA - The Georgia NAACP State Conference will host a virtual Criminal Justice Reform Summit Part II on March 5, 2022, at 2:00 pm. The mission of

this summit is to educate Georgia residents about their rights to become equipped and obtain knowledge to protect themselves.

Ms. Hildiah Martin-Suggs, chair of the Georgia State Criminal Justice Committee said, “We would like for our citizens to get involved in their communities to bridge the gap. We want to provide resources so that residents can receive guidance, advocate for themselves, and obtain assistance if needed.” She also stated, “I encourage everyone to educate themselves and be courageous when fighting the good fight for justice. Join the NAACP! Become active with our youth/college branches. The youth are our future and the youth need us. When we fight in unity, we win in solidarity!”

Ida B. Wells said, “The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them and for too long, those who commit the murders, write the reports.” There has been a mistrust of those who say they “protect and serve.” This summit will address those issues and help the community.

A panel of guests from the Georgia Federal Bureau of Investigation, Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, SWAT Team, City of Atlanta Citizens Review Board, Clippers and Cops, Legal Shield, and Georgia State Conference Executives will be discussing these topics: Policing, Police Involved Shootings, Police Reform, Prison Reform, Crime Prevention, the Role of the FBI and SWAT, Constitutional Rights, Protecting Your Rights, and so much more. Also, we have youth, Zion & Zoey Moore, as panelist to share their experiences and insights pertaining to these topics.
