Speaking at UM Law School on panel with Peter Liang's defense attorneys Friday

I've been invited to speak at the University of Michigan Law School this Friday, April 15, 12:00-1:00 pm, Hutchins Hall 220, on a panel with Peter Liang's defense attorneys.
Officer Peter Liang and the Asian-American Community: Scapegoating, Justice, or Something Else?
Officer Peter Liang was the first NYPD officer convicted in over a decade for a line-of-duty shooting against the tense political and social backdrop of a post-Ferguson world. Officer Liang’s defense attorneys, Rae Koshetz and Robert Brown, and local journalist and activist Frances Kai-Hwa Wang will discuss Liang’s legal case and the posture of Asian-Americans and other minority groups within a highly racialized criminal justice system.
