 ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Over the last year, communities across the country have assessed their treatment of minorities and other under-represented populations. In an effort to facilitate dialogue in the Attorney General community, Amazon and the Attorney General Alliance have partnered to create a series of conversations exploring issues around justice and social equity. We are excited to announce 2021 as the inaugural year of this forum and we look forward to providing focused programing aimed at facilitating exploration of these issues. We thank Amazon for their leadership and invite all of our public and private partners join us as we embark on these discussions.

UPCOMING VIRTUAL PROGRAMS
Organized Retail Crime and the INFORM Act
Tuesday, March 9th from 1-2pm ET

Moderated by Attorney General Chris Carr, Georgia

On Tuesday, Georgia AG Chris Carr moderated the AGA's webinar on organized retail crime (ORC). Though ORC might seem like a relatively minor issue, it's been linked to criminal activity like weapons trading, human trafficking, and money laundering. State AGs across the country have been working with retailers and e-commerce sites to crack down on illicit sales while also keeping in mind concerns like seller privacy and the physical safety of consumers and bystanders. Legislation, including the U.S. Senate's INFORM Act, and policies created by individual retailers and e-commerce sites (like eBay's PROACT program), present potential solutions to this emerging problem.
