The Ypsilanti Police-Community Relations Black Lives Matter Task Force is meeting in hopes of hearing from the community and dive more deeply into local policy change in light of recent police shootings around the country.

I spoke with Ypsilanti Mayor Amanda Edmonds about the meeting.  She says growing interest in the task force has prompted them to move it to a bigger venue to accommodate more people and let concerned citizens have a voice.

Mayor Edmonds says they're not sure what kind of community input to expect but look forward to what residents have to say.
