Cleveland's Consent Decree: Explained

Join us for the third installment in our series on the Cleveland Consent Decree with Carole Rendon (First Assistant US Attorney), Barbara Langhenry (the City of Cleveland’s Law Director), and Gary Singletary (the City of Cleveland’s Chief Counsel).

Our panelists, who were each intimately involved in the negotiations that produced the final Consent Decree, will begin the program by outlining the substance of the agreement and how it is designed to work. The discussion will then explore how the Consent Decree will be enforced and how the legal and civic communities can stay engaged with its implementation to ensure the Consent Decree brings about lasting change.
