Join us for CAU Now on Jazz 91.9 WCLK Saturday morning at 8:30am for a wide-ranging discussion about safety and community preparedness with Clark Atlanta University Chief of Police Debra A. Williams. Chief Williams will discuss recent events around the AUC and stress the importance of preparedness as we observe National Preparedness Month.

CAU Now presents a special conversation about safety, service and community in the aftermath of the August 20th incident adjacent to the Clark Atlanta University Campus. Our guest is CAU Student Derrick Daniels, who walked towards the aftermath to render first aid to a wounded student when others were fleeing. Daniels talks about how growing up in the Inglewood Community in Chicago prepared him to deal with the unexpected, and why his journey led him to Atlanta and Clark Atlanta University.
