Jul 27: FBI Civil Rights & More Town Hall
Join us at 6pm on July 27th for a discussion with our local FBI Field Office.
Introduction from the San Diego FBI:
The FBI is the lead federal agency responsible for investigating federal civil rights and color of law violations. These investigations are at the heart of what the FBI does, because civil liberties and civil rights are at the heart of who we all are as Americans. The FBI’s goal is to ensure justice is served in a fair and impartial manner for all parties. The FBI is bound by an oath to serve all citizens with equal compassion, professionalism, dignity, and respect. The American people deserve nothing less.
Special Agent in Charge Suzanne Turner (Head of the San Diego Field Office) will be the first presenter providing a general overview of the FBI mission, priorities, programs, and investigations. Following, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Todd Hemmen will present Color of Law, a general FBI Civil Rights overview, and briefly cover Hate Crimes reporting. The final presenter will be Special Agent Wendy Teasdale who will provide an insight to FBI recruitment.
