Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, Rapper Meek Mill Take Part In Town Hall Meeting On Policing In Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and Philadelphia-native rapper Meek Mill are among those who took part in a town hall meeting on policing. The forum is called the Player’s Coalition Town Hall and Jenkins says the goal is to give Philadelphians a voice on who their next police commissioner should be. The two-time Super Bowl champion was front and center at the Community College of Philadelphia to discuss policing in Philadelphia and hear what the community wants to see in their next police commissioner.“ What we want to see is a commissioner that comes in with the idea that there needs to be a radical change in the culture of policing in Philadelphia,” Jenkins said.The social justice and racial equality advocacy nonprofit organization that Jenkins co-founded called the Player’s Coalition, hosted the town hall forum.“We wanted to create a forum where these voices can be heard and weigh in,” Jenkins said. “And we wanted to package it in a way for Mayor Kenney to consider. If he is listening to the concerns of the citizens, this is the first step."
