Whether it's called bias, prejudice, stereotyping, or bigotry, everyone has the tendency to prejudge people.

Panelists:

Jon R. Gundry, Santa Clara County Superintendent of Schools, who is a national leader of the "My Name, My Identity" initiative that promotes valuing different cultures and languages by honoring and pronouncing student names correctly.

Tuyen Flack, Deputy Director of Silicon Valley FACES, which is dedicated to creating and promoting an empathetic and inclusive community free of bias, bigotry, and violence through experiential learning programs and advocacy.

Ron Buford, pastor of the Congregational Community Church in Sunnyvale and a leader of Racists Anonymous, a nondenominational program recently profiled by CBS News and NPR that uses the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step model to address prejudices.

2:00 PM - 3:15 PM
Cupertino Library
Sunday, March 12       2:00 PM
Cupertino Community Hall
Co-sponsored by Commonwealth Club Silicon Valley and League of Women Voters Southwest-Santa Clara Valley

Procedural Justice is a national initiative that focuses on the way police and other legal authorities interact with the public.   It is based on four principles: treating people with dignity and respect; giving citizens “voice” during encounters; being neutral in decision making; and conveying trustworthy motives.

 

In this panel discussion, three local police chiefs with a combined total of more than 75 years of law enforcement experience in Santa Clara County will discuss how local police departments are using procedural justice to build trust with the community to ensure individuals are being treated fairly and without bias.

 

Panelists:

  • Dennis R. Burns, recently retired Chief of Police for the City of Palo Alto who joined the department in 1982

  • David Honda, 25-year veteran of San Jose Police Department who in 2016 became Police Chief for the City of Watsonville

  • Phan Ngo, 27-year veteran of San Jose Police Department and newly-installed Chief of the City of Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety

  • Moderator: Barbara Marshman, Editorial Page Editor, San Jose Mercury News
