Political Education: Hyper-surveillance in Detroit

Date: 
Tue, Jul 16, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

Lack of affordable housing, contaminated water in our schools, unreliable public transportation, lack of access to HIV/AIDS medications, mental health facilities closings and lack of stable jobs. These are a few of many resources Detroiters are denied, because Duggan and Detroit city government has determined that a large portion of our budget should go towards hyper surveillance, facial recognition technology and over-policing in our neighborhoods in effort to stop crime.

Crime happens because of a lack of resources, so pouring our tax dollars into over policing Black Detroiters is not the solution. Furthermore, it has led to the funneling of more Black and Brown bodies into the prison system. We need real solutions, WE NEED RESOURCES!
