Beyond Gang Injunctions: a Community Discussion

Location Details
EastSide Arts Alliance
2277 International Boulevard
Oakland, CA 94606-5003
Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorKarl Jagbandhansingh
Gang injunctions are a part of a new strategy of policing and prosecution that promise to reduce gang violence and promote safety.

But some argue that these strategies siphon money away from crucial community programs, attack civil liberties, and increase racial profiling and police violence on young black and brown men.

Join National Radio Project, producers of Making Contact, for an engaging Community Discussion on Gang Injunctions (in North Oakland and the Fruitvale neighborhoods.)

Saturday, May 7th from 2:30-4:30pm.

EastSide Arts Alliance

We’ll hear from:

* George Galvis, Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice
* Sagnitche Salazar, Stop the Injunction Coalition
* Eric K. Arnold, Oakland Local
* Whitney Young, Critical Resistance
* And YOU! (there’ll be plenty of time for Questions and Answers)

Sponsored by National Radio Project, producers of Making Contact.
Co-sponsored by First Voice Apprenticeship at KPFA
