Go to: http://mappingpoliceviolence.org/
(While this particular organization’s website may not be the prettiest of them all, one benefit is that you can actually download their data and dig deeper and read more on the issue if you so desire.)
One paragraph per question is sufficient.
1. Summarize and react to the findings from the home page. (This means summarize what you learned and then comment or respond on it.)

2. Go to the tabs at the top and click on Unarmed Victims. Look at the 2015 figures. Read the key findings and then scroll through the photos and get to know some of the people who comprise these statistics. Summarize and react to the finding from this page.

3. Explore at least one other tab or feature on this website (e.g., the 2015 Police Violent Report tab, Comparing Places tab). Summarize what you learned and your reactions to it.

 

PART 2: SOLUTIONS
