Gainesville attorney Ashley Bell brings criminal justice forum to Democratic Convention
Ashley Bell
Attorney Ashley Bell
As a black Republican, Gainesville attorney and former Hall County commissioner, Ashley Bell is in a unique position to address criminal justice reform — which has become something of a national dialogue after recent police shootings of African-Americans, as well as violent assaults on law enforcement in Texas and Louisiana. Now, Bell has taken his 20/20 Leaders of America group, of which he is a co-chair, to Philadelphia and the site of the Democratic National Convention to host a forum Tuesday on the subject. 20/20 is dedicated to bringing people together to “elevate issues disproportionately affecting communities of color above partisan politics.”
