As the list of black men and women murdered by police and racist vigilantes grows, the call for racial equity becomes louder.

Join TriplePundit senior editor Mary Mazzoni on August 5 at 12 p.m. ET  for a live conversation with the Responsible Business Initiative for Justice and their partners on what businesses can do to keep the spotlight and momentum on criminal justice issues.

They’ll also discuss how companies can help end police brutality, target their support to create tangible impact and use their influence to advance racial equity.
