Local faith leaders from the Interfaith Coalition for Action, Reconciliation and Empowerment, I-CARE, will gather tonight to call for criminal justice reform citywide.

In April, Sheriff Mike Williams committed to working with State Attorney Melissa Nelson to create an adult civil citation program and make improvements to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office's mental health training for officers.

ICARE says that Sheriff Williams still has work to do to fulfill that promise. Tonight, the group will call on the sheriff and other officials to follow through on reform.

Guests:

Stacey Abrams

Voting rights activist and former Georgia House of Representatives Minority Leader Stacey Abrams is coming to the Florida Theatre this week. Melissa Ross will moderate a conversation about Abrams’ national campaign to ensure everyone has access to the ballot.
