Last summer, amid the protests demanding police reform following the death of George Floyd, we spoke with Darlene McDonald, of the Utah Black Roundtable and a member of the then newly-created Salt Lake City Commission on Racial Equity in Policing. She said at the time: “Once the protests end and the streets become quiet, it is imperative that we not lose focus. We must redefine a new normal in policing.”
Today we’re going to check back in with Darlene McDonald. We’ll talk about systemic racism and police reform and see what’s happening at the legislature and with the commission.
