Thirty years ago, The Advocates for Human Rights led the development of a mechanism that has become the international standard for investigating political assassinations and other suspicious deaths. Known as The Minnesota Protocol, it was adopted by the United Nations and has been used to investigate deaths in Rwanda, Bosnia, and other countries. Could it also be used to investigate police-involved shootings in the U.S.?
Join us on November 4 for a free symposium that will explore this and other aspects of the recently-updated Protocol. Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm will present the keynote on Challenges of Prosecuting Police Involved Shootings. The symposium will feature some of the original creators of the Protocol as well as local and international forensic and legal experts. The event is free and lunch will be provided.
