Police Accountability Board Update: a Sunday Seminar

March 6 @ 8:45 am - 9:45 am

Welcome the Police Accountability Board’s (PAB) Executive Director and the Board Chair for their update on the PAB’s progress, direction, and how faith communities might play an important role.  This conversation is framed by Third Church’s previous deep-dives on key areas of the Report of the Commission on Racial and Structural Equity (RASE).
Please note that this seminar will NOT be held on our usual platform, but will instead be on Zoom at this link.

Conor Dwyer Reynolds is the Executive Director of the Police Accountability Board. He is a Rochester native and graduate of the University of Rochester and Yale Law School. Conor worked for President Obama at the White House and on the Obama-Biden campaign. In his legal career, Conor has sued banks to protect homeowners from foreclosure, served as a law clerk to the Hon. Carlton W. Reeves, and ran Yale’s Environmental Protection Clinic. During his time at the Clinic, Conor led a project to address the racist legacy of racially restrictive covenants in Monroe County.

Shani Wilson serves as the Chair of the Police Accountability Board. She is a Primary Care Physician Assistant at Trillium Health and a Board-certified Physician Assistant (NCCPA) with areas of expertise in Suboxone Treatment, LGBTQ+ Health, sexual health, and minority health disparities with emphasis on mental health, Trauma Informed Care and vaccine preventable diseases. Community activism and engagement has been especially important to her. Shani works closely with local LGBTQ+ organizations such as Rochester Black Pride, where she currently serves as one of the co-organizers, and the Greater Rochester LGBTQ+ Political Caucus where she serves on the steering and education committees. She also serves on the Board of Spiritus Christi Mental Health Center.
