Counting Crime: Racial Politics of Crime Data and How It's Used
Date Tuesday July 27
Time 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorHaymarket Books
Location Details
Online event (FREE)
Politicians, pundits, and mainstream media are claiming crime is going up and some are blaming defund the police campaigns. But how we measure crime is a socially constructed, political process and more data literacy on this topic can be useful in this political moment.

In this educational lecture we will learn about some of the history of counting crime during the post-Emancipation period, who has pushed for crime data to be collected, some of the major data sources (including the samples and methods), and how crime data is deployed for various purposes.

While this event and all of our events are freely available, we ask that those who are able make a solidarity donation in support of this important work. Part of the proceeds from this event will go to the National Bail Fund Network.


Date and time: Tue, July 27, 2021 @ 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM PDT
