A new, wide-ranging initiative to encourage de-escalation training on the heels of the recent racially-related violence and police shootings, is bringing “Where DO We Go From Here?” a Baton Rouge town hall meeting being broadcast live, uninterrupted and commercial free tonight, Tuesday Aug. 2 at 8 p.m.

The town hall meeting will be aired on Bounce TV, and the meeting is being produced by affiliate WAFB-TV.

Martin Luther King III, one of the founders of Bounce TV, will participate in the conversation, along with an invited audience representing a diverse and broad range of community and civic leaders. WAFB anchors Greg Meriwether and Lauren Westbrook will moderate the discussion, set to take place in Baton Rouge.

Bounce TV is carrying Where Do We Go From Here? as part of its new wide-ranging initiative to encourage de-escalation training, in which it has teamed with The Root, the premier news, opinion and culture site for African-American influencers, to support the effort.
