Do We Need Independent Civilian Oversight Boards?
Wednesday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day)
We have invited Jessica Sapalio, an advocate for racial justice and criminal legal system reform and a founding member of the WJCC Coalition for Community Justice, to update us on recent reforms in criminal justice that were just passed by the General Assembly, as well as independent civilian oversight boards for police departments, the Williamsburg Court Watch program and the Journey to Asylum Program. Jessica runs the Williamsburg Court Watch and the Journey to Asylum programs.
Prior to moving to Williamsburg, she lived in Australia and Northern Virginia and worked as Vice President at GMMB, a communications and marketing firm for social causes and liberal candidates, and for the American Red Cross Measles Initiative vaccination campaign in Africa and Asia. In her spare time, she tries to pass on her spirit of activism to her four kids and is a volunteer archaeologist on slavery-related historical sites.
Read Jessica’s 1/22/21 opinion in the Virginia Gazette.
