MRISJ Civic Speaker Series: A Conversation with Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins

On behalf of the Martin Richard Institute for Social Justice, African American Studies, and the Department of Criminal Justice at Bridgewater State University you're invited to attend a virtual conversation with Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins on Thursday, April 22 from 4:00 - 5:00 PM. This event is the first of the MRISJ Civic Speaker Series.

District Attorney Rachael Rollins is the chief law enforcement officer for Boston, Chelsea, Revere, and Winthrop Massachusetts. She is the first woman ever elected as District Attorney in Suffolk County and the first woman of color ever elected to serve in this role in Massachusetts. Her story serves as an inspiration to those seeking to make a difference through public service.

Dr. Mary Grant, Senior Administrative Fellow for Civics and Social Justice, will provide opening remarks. Dr. Mia Ortiz, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at Bridgewater State University and Zahara Townsend, an undergraduate Justice Fellow with the MRISJ will moderate the conversation. Together they will discuss with DA Rollins her experience running for office, and her impressive work as an advocate for criminal justice reform and racial equity through her position in public leadership.

Registration is required.
