Voices Magnified: Policing in America

About

Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Laurence Fishburne, “Voices Magnified: Policing in America” examines what it will take to transform the way we police our streets so people of all races can feel safe and respected by those who are charged with protecting them.

Assembling multiple perspectives including community leaders and activists, police, grieving families and victims of brutality, the aim is to understand why, amid a global health pandemic, Americans from across the socioeconomic and racial spectrum felt compelled to leave the safety of their homes and pour into the streets this spring to demand racial justice after the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others. People with the most at stake on all sides seek to advance solutions to these issues, transforming the smoldering embers of the uprising into a real spark for systemic change.

The special will also specifically examine the city and county of Los Angeles and track the unfolding story of how that city is working to address the historically troubled relationship between residents of color and law enforcement.
