Former President Bill Clinton and outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder are scheduled to address a group of mayors and police chiefs gathering in Little Rock next week to discuss race and community policing.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors will host a forum Wednesday at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock. The former president is set to address the group along with Holder, who announced last week that he'll be stepping down from his post.

The meeting agenda includes a discussion about the August fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

The two-day gathering will also mark the 20th anniversary of the Community Oriented Policing Services - or COPS - program, which was established during Clinton's presidency.
