Ypsilanti Activist Continues Conversation On Community Policing Forum

Dedicated To Make A Change
/

The recent police-related shootings across the country have sparked conversations about race and policing in Washtenaw County.

The City of Ypsilantirecently held a public forum on the issue to determine what they need to do about it.

I spoke with Gail Wolkoff, the founder of Dedicated To Make A Change, a youth empowerment group in Ypsilanti.  She was at the forum and gives her take of the situation.

I also spoke with two local high school students, Tajon Reid, 16, and Victoria Stewart, 17, who associate with Wolkoff's group and were at the meeting.
