Walking While Black

February 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join a discussion at Rutgers’ Gov. James J. Florio Special Events Forum on the ProPublica/Florida Times-Union “Walking While Black” investigative series. Reporters Topher Sanders and Ben Conarck will be on hand to answer questions about the innovative project which focused on Jacksonville, Fla. Some of the findings included: jaywalking tickets were disproportionally given to black pedestrians; tickets were often used as a means to question and search pedestrians and; the city’s pedestrian infrastructure was poorest in the areas police ticketed.
