Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo will team up with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as part of a panel called “Unfinished Business: Race and Equity in America.”

Acevedo will be part of an interview featured on Sunday, October 18, whose goal is to spark conversations about racism in America, among other topics.

Throughout 2020, Acevedo has made headlines for voicing his support of George Floyd protesters and warning looters during Hurricane Laura, so it comes as no surprise he would be front and center for this event.
