Webinar description: For many of us, defunding the police is a new idea. Most white people in our lives have beliefs about policing that are shaped by our racist culture, not reality or history. How do we help more people in our lives understand what defund means and move them to a place of supporting this powerful demand? How can those of us who are new to this demand deepen our understanding of what frontline organizers are calling for? Join SURJ and Mariame Kaba– organizer, writer and leader in the transformative justice and abolition movement– as we explore what we mean when we talk about abolition, what abolition actually looks like on the ground, and how you can plug in to the work!
