Police-Community Relations Mural Dedication

The UGA School of Public and International Affairs, Office of Government Relations and Office of Instruction invite guests to a special event to dedicate the Police-Community Relations Mural.

In the summer of 2017, freshman UGA students in Brian Williams First Year Odyssey Seminar class, “The Current State of Police-Community Relations: Problems and Prospects,” partnered with Athens police officers and kids from local youth outreach programs to paint a mural depicting police-community relations. Students from Williams' class helped design and paint the mural with help from local artist and community organizer, Broderick Flanagan. The mural, painted on the side of Athens restaurant Food for the Soul, shows how police-community relations have been in the past, how they currently are, and how they should be in the future.

Parking Information: The entrance to Colima Ave off Broad Street will be blocked off. Parking will be available on the surrounding streets as well as at the Clarke County School District Office on Dearing Ext.

Tuesday, May 15 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm
