The Latino Community and the Justice System

August 12, 2015 – Segment 1court

We begin the show with a special archive edition from 2009, part of our Urbanite Radio Stories series in partnership with the Urbanite magazine. The topic of the show is The Latino Community and the Justice System and we explore what happens when members of the Latino community become victims of crime but fail to report it out of fear of the police and legal system.

With: Major Roger Bergeron, Commander of the Baltimore Southeastern Police District; Evelyn Vargas, a bilingual advocate in the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office; and Elizabeth Alex, Senior Manager of the Baltimore office of Casa de Maryland.
