Virtual Program | Defunding the Police, Building Community Safety


In this moment when calls for defunding the police are rising, we must ask ourselves: What does community safety look like without relying on the police? What does it look like when neighbors and neighborhood businesses have an investment in keeping each other safe?

Join Maya Schenwar and Victoria Law, authors of Prison By Any Other Name, and Brooklyn-based community organizers Devante Tate and Ejeris Dixon to discuss policing in Brooklyn, the movement to defund the police, and existing community safety strategies. They will explore the role that police play in our communities that police play in our communities, and imagine what real safety might look like for us all.

This program will have American Sign Language interpretation and live captioning available.

This program was funded in part by Humanities New York with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
