From its beginnings with slave patrols and strikebreakers, policing serves property over people. This workshop will focus on the practical steps to police abolition. We will be naming community needs, pointing out the ways police use them as an excuse to stay in our neighborhoods, sharing our experiences with policing, and working together to think of other options that we already have or could have in the future. This is a Black and Brown centered, queer friendly, no cop zone. Allies are welcome, but should know to respect the space. Together we can build better ways to keep each other safe.
