The sheer power of the historic Black Lives Matter protests of the past month have forced a belated acknowledgement: policing in America must be changed. Now.
Our guest is particularly well-suited to help us understand what needs to be done, why it needs to be done, and the challenges we will face in getting it done. In addition to her years as a Superior Court Judge, LaDoris Cordell also served as the independent police auditor for the city of San Jose. The auditor served as an independent reviewer of citizen complaints against police and recommended policy changes for the department.
Judge Cordell has also served as Vice Provost of Stanford University and was a Palo Alto City Council member. https://judgecordell.com/
