Police violence in Modesto and Stanislaus County: is it perceived or real? You are invited to come to and participate in a community forum organized by the Valley Improvement Project (VIP) on Saturday, September 17, 2016, at 10:30a in the Gathering Room at the Church of the Brethren. VIP is planning a panel on Know Your Rights, and local law enforcement accountability. The focus will be on listening and healing within the community. After the panel discussion a question and answer time will follow so all voices can be heard in a safe place. This event is co-sponsored by the Witness Commission and Valley Improvement Program. As the date gets closer, you will find more information in the weekly Sunday bulletin.
