Will you make it to this Thursday's Community Safety workgroup (Thu June 9th)? We hope so. Can you bring friends? Please do.

This week we will talk about two important things:

1. The scope and mission of the Community Safety Workgroup and
2. Outreach to others

And on top of that, we will of course be working in our small groups the majority of the time. Remember you may also have committed to research/homework/action in your small groups. Bring the results back to your team.

See you on Thursday.

For years, folks in the DIY community have been working on ways to make our communities more self-reliant and more supportive of each other. Many envision a world in which people don't need police or laws to tell them how to be a good person.

And people naturally ask "Without police, wouldn't there be chaos and violence?" We get asked these legitimate questions all the time. It's time we acknowledged that safety and security is an important concern, began to wrestle with some possible answers, and provide functional alternatives to rule by violence and coercion.

This is a structured workshop to plan ways to keep our communities safe at all levels. Accountability process, community crisis response, education and public perception, mutual support and solidarity, defense of communities, and making the police obsolete -- these are some of the challenges we'll tackle.

Community Safety Workgroup
Every Other Thursday - Thu June 9th 5pm to 7pm
SubRosa, 703 Pacific Ave, Santa Cruz
