Listening Sessions and Written Comment Period on the City of Philadelphia’s and the Philadelphia Police Department’s Responses to Protests

To assist in assessing the response of the City of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Police Department to recent protests and unrest, the After-Action review team will hold public listening sessions to hear from community members in September on dates to be announced. These sessions will be held live via Zoom video-conferencing because of the restrictions on in-person gatherings due to COVID-19.

In addition, written comments will be accepted until Thursday, September 20, 2020, at 4:30 pm. Anyone who registered to speak but could not be accommodated due to the number of requests may submit in writing a copy of the remarks that they had planned to make by Monday, September 21, 2020.

The Independent After-Action Team, however, will continue to accept community comments at
