With the recent police shooting and protest in Ferguson, Missouri, people across the country are speaking out.

Here in Athens, Students for Law, Justice and Culture are discussing the topic in the "Racism, Policing and Struggles for Justice in Ferguson" panel.

The faculty panel will take place tonight and cover issues such as the bias in the police system.

Following the panel will be a question and answer session to get the community to speak out on these issues.

It is free and open to students and the public who want to speak out on the issue.

Vince Jungkunz, one of the faculty who will be featured at the panel, said it is a chance for students, and the public, to promote activism locally.

Jungkunz said, "Our students can take responsibility and they can do quite a bit to change the society we live in. And I think that’s the most important reason for them to come out tonight.“

The panel begins at 6 p.m. in the Athena room 212.
