Black lives matter in our communities. Listening may provide one pathway for action and reconciliation. Using the Atatiana Jefferson tragedy in Fort Worth, Texas, on Oct. 12, 2019, as a starting point, this webinar provides perspectives on how cities listen during critical incidents. Her tragic murder, tied to national discussions about police brutality and power, also led to local protests and conversations about unmet promises of change by the city and its police force.
3CMA Webinar | Saying Her Name – The Case Of Atatiana Jefferson and What It Can Teach Us About Community Listening
Wednesday, October 28, 2020
In the webinar, Drs. Ashley English and Jacque Lambiase review frameworks for how organizations listen to stakeholders under ideal circumstances, and how organizations can demonstrate the impact of that listening even on the toughest topics. Along with co-researcher Julie O'Neil at TCU, the two speakers are conducting a case study and in-depth interviews focused on this tragic incident. They will trace subsequent developments in the Fort Worth community, as well as offer recommendations for changing the ways that cities listen to residents and other stakeholders.
