Are you tired of racist, classist, ableist and anti-homeless policing? Want to deal with crisis and conflict in other ways?
When the police fail to “protect and serve,” who can we turn to in moments of need? How can we respond to conflict and crisis without the punishment and violence that comes with policing and prisons? What would take to build and use alternative responses in our own lives and communities?
Come out to talk about these questions and more.
If folks want to share (optional, of course), there will be time to talk about situations from our lives and brainstorm responses that prioritize de-escalation, accountability, healing and preventing harm.
Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of their stance on the police. However, the focus of this workshop will be on considering options other than the police.
Snacks will be provided.
