Minnesota - Hennepin County Sheriff Joins Roundtable with Somali Community
(Medeshi)- Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek will attend a community roundtable with the Somali community Thursday.
The meeting is hosted by the Voice of East African Women and is the first in a series designed to provide interaction with law enforcement and teach the Somali community how to reach out to police. The focus of Thursday’s meeting will be on Somali youth and the juvenile justice system.
Organizers say the roundtables are part of the VEAW’s work to empower women to take a more active role in defining problems and solutions. They are especially focusing on ending domestic abuse, violence against women and sex trafficking.
The roundtable runs from 6-8 p.m. at the Sabathani Community Center in Minneapolis. Source: http://kstp.com/
