Reimagining Community Safety and Policing: Did you miss it?
See the Highlights (Part 2) on Public Access TV
What would it mean to demilitarize and defund the NYPD?
On October 8, 2020, Brooklyn For Peace sponsored a forum to imagine what genuine community safety would look like. Featured speakers Alex Vitale, Sociology Professor at Brooklyn College and author of The End of Policing and Rev. Dr. Emma Jordan-Simpson, Exec. Pastor, Concord Baptist Church and Exec. Director, Fellowship of Reconciliation, led a robust and unique discussion on what the militarization of police has meant and the cost of relying on police to address too many of our societal issues.
