The second annual Riverside Coalition for Police Accountability (RCPA) membership dinner will feature a youth panel from local colleges providing their perception of police and social justice in the Riverside area. Additionally, the fourth annual Bill Howe Award for Police Accountability will be presented to Leslie Braden for her courage and tenacity after her brother, Joseph D. Hill, was killed by RPD officers during a routine traffic stop on October 19, 2006. The award is named for former UCR Police Chief Bill (William) Howe. The moderator for the student panel discussion will be Frank Hauptmann, Manager of the Community Police Review Commission (CPRC).

The Riverside Coalition for Police Accountability was founded in response to the 1998 Tyisha Miller shooting and is dedicated to police oversight. The event will take place Monday, February 13th, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Community Settlement Association of Riverside, 4366 Bermuda Avenue, Riverside, CA 92507.

The event is free and open to the public. A light dinner will be served.
