Saleem Shakir, a consultant to Yolo County’s Disproportionate Minority Contact Project, will speak from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday about ways to reduce incarceration of Latino juveniles. His talk, which is free and open to the public, will take place at a Court Watch Council meeting at the Holy Rosary Pastoral Center, 503 California St. in Woodland.
“Saleem Shakir is a gifted grassroots policy activist,” says Diane Evans of Davis. “He equips everyday people as well as service providers and police officers with the ability to articulate policy decisions that fulfill the needs of the least protected. He models thinking and language strategies that lead to deeper understanding between people who have diverse and opposing opinions.”
