Charleston Forum to host webinar on law enforcement and criminal justice fairness
CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – The Charleston Forum will discuss perceptions, challenges and actions regarding race and systematic inequalities through a virtual forum on October 6.
The forum will cover survey data that highlights the particular challenges of local justice systems. Survey respondents were asked about action plans and specific needs within their communities.

Specific topics for discussion include liability, policing, pre-trial justice, criminal justice, coordination advice, punishment and rehabilitation.
The forum consists of four panelists, moderated by Kristy Danford, Charleston County Criminal Justice Council project manager, and moderated by News 2 presenter Carolyn Murray.
- Scarlet Wilson, Ninth Circuit lawyer
- Gary Raney, President and GAR, Inc.
- Jerry Blassingame, Founder and CEO of Soteria Community Development Corporation
