"The shocking death of George Floyd reminded us all of the challenges America faces in law enforcement and race relations," Commission Vice Chairman Weekly said. "The peaceful rallies and protests here and elsewhere show how widespread the frustration is and how much people want to be involved in a solution. It is important that we come together as a community to discuss where we are and where we want to be."
The panelists for the summit will include Laura Martin, executive director of PLAN, Sandra Douglass-Morgan, chair of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, Minister Kyle West, a youth activist, Devin Brooks, an entrepreneur and community activist, Dwayne Morgan, Caesers chief of nightlife compliance, and Lady A.K.
