Care, Not Cops: A Community Conversation

Date: 
Sat, Jan 19, 2019 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

City:

Before 2018 came to a close, a bunch of us gathered to discuss care networks that we imagine beyond policing.

Our conversation touched on police funding, power mapping, recognizing our limits and building within them, multi-generational movements, and interesting projects across time and space that we can draw from - like the CAHOOTS crisis response program in Eugene that aims to replace police with mental health experts.

In the end, there was a lot of energy, and a desire to meet again, so we'd like to hold space for more brainstorming and networking.

Since we joined the anti-Trump Resistance two years ago, we have participated in an enormous national movement: demonstrating, visiting Congress prepresentatives and Senators, phoning and emailing, going to Lansing and D.C., educating ourselves, and working on the midterm elections. But Trump is still president. What do we do now? Join us for a lively discussion in our 2019 opening forum.
