National Tribute to Law Enforcement free virtual event on Oct 17 2020

Dr. Carol M. Swain's Be The People Project is hosting a free-to-attend National Tribute to Law Enforcement virtual event on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10AM to 12PM CST. This open to the public event, organized to celebrate and honor police officers during a time when law enforcement professionals have come under intense scrutiny nationwide, will educate attendees about what law enforcement officers do for us and how citizens can work together with the police to make our cities safer.

"The idea for hosting the conference was inspired by a conversation I had with a colleague about the violent attacks on police officers and the need to show them how much we appreciate the tremendous job they do for us under the most trying circumstances," said Swain, Founding Director of Be The People Project. "We are giving away over 100 50-dollar gift certificates to law enforcement professionals that register for this event because we want to bless as many active-duty officers with funds that will allow them to have a meal or go to a movie at our expense."

This event will feature keynote speaker and recognized civil rights activist Robert L. Woodson Sr., who will offer thanks to officers while sharing key insights related to the current environment in which they now must operate, in his address entitled "No Police No Peace." Other speakers include both active and retired law enforcement professionals, such as Kenneth Harms, who will discuss The Politicization of Law Enforcement, James Smallwood, Lt. Randy Sutton, and TN Senate Candidate Bill Hagerty (R). Topics covered will range from legal and medical resources available to officers, to the political and social environment officers face and how we can show our support.

"I am convinced that police officers are among the most honorable people in our society, and their ranks are filled with an incredibly high percentage of truly wonderful people," said Lee Beaman, event co-sponsor. "It breaks my heart that they are being so unjustly criticized and attacked, even by elected officials and the media; it must be terribly demoralizing. I believe it's time for the good people of this country to take a stand and defend our law enforcement to let them know we appreciate them."

"This virtual event will help teach attendees to honor the law of the land and those responsible for upholding our laws and our Constitution. Respect of our laws and law enforcement is vital if we are to survive as a nation," said Joni Bryan, co-organizer of the Tribute event, and Executive Director of the 917 Society.
