Luis Fernandez (Sustainable Communities, Northern Arizona University) on Reimagining Police: Reform, Defund, or Abolish

March 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The history of racial disparities in the United States is long and deeply rooted. The BLM mobilizations last summer reminded us of the explosive nature of racial mistreatment around law enforcement. In the wake of BLM, cities, counties, and states are trying to address the issue in a variety of ways. This talk will explain the basic strategies currently being considered, including their ideological orientations and assumptions. Fernandez is the author of the forthcoming book Shutting Down the Streets: Political Violence and Social Control. Hosted by the Roots of Contemporary Issues and History Department.
