Racism and Policing Part 1

Event Description:

EGPS Work Group for Racial Equity Discussion Group

Racism and Policing Part 1

Monday December 21, 2020 8:30-9:45pm

Racism and white supremacy function seamlessly, even at times invisibly to those not directly impacted by the systems of control.

For the next three months the Work Group for Racial Equity will be taking a deeper dive into understanding of the origins of policing, how it's directly connected to racism and police violence toward Black people, the intersection of policing racism and mental illness, and some thoughts about where to go from here.

Our series will begin in December by reading articles and watching a video that describes the history and origins of policing in the United States. Please join us for a thoughtful and engaging discussion. We invite emotional risk-taking about how this issue impacts you. Be brave about sharing and listening deeply.
