Demonstrators carry a banner while marching down Interstate 225 during a rally and march over the death of 23-year-old Elijah McClain, Saturday, June 27, 2020, in Aurora, Colo. McClain died in late August 2019 after he was stopped while walking to his apartment by three Aurora Police Department officers.

To get perspective on the process of police reform and the recommendations so far, we talk with Ryan Ross, the facilitator of Aurora's Community Police Task Force; Omar Montgomery, a task force member; and Nicole Johnston, a member of Aurora City Council. Plus, we get additional context from Rachel Pickens, executive director of the National Police Accountability Project.
