Care, Not Cops

Date: 
Sat, Mar 16, 2019 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

Last month, we came together despite the gross weather and a last minute venue change.

We discussed places/groups that needlessly interface with police and places where police are institutionally imposed. We also began to brainstorm how to interrupt this by focusing on harm reduction and care.

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.
