Decolonize! Keynote “Defund the Police: What it Means & What Must Be Done”
Start Date: 4/6/2021Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 4/6/2021End Time: 1:45 PM
Event Description:
A consistent call coming out of nationwide protests is to Defund the Police and Abolish the Police. What do these demands mean in practice? How can we transform our communities and end a policing institution born out of the system of chattel slavery and fueled by white supremacy? The police brutality and violence we have been witnessing is also linked to the ongoing militarization of local police forces. The resources that police departments drain away from community needs like health care, education, and housing has to end. Some cities are already in motion - Minneapolis is dismantling its police department, a number of cities are moving money from bloated police budgets to Black and Brown communities. New legislation in Congress aims to end and punish police misconduct. This is a timely presentation that will bring clarity to a sometimes confusing topic.
