Creating a World Beyond Policing

Please join us for night two in our Beyond Policing series to explore, imagine, and help CREATE a world beyond policing. Tonight will feature an organizational share and panel discussion with local abolitionist activists, and will welcome Alex Vitale as our guest presenter.

About the Event:
Given the profound distrust between Portlanders and their police department and the struggles that Portland has had with historical police repression and contemporary collaboration with violent right winger hate groups, the time seems ripe for a reconsideration of policing in Portland.

-Childcare and ASL Interpretation will be available
-Vegetarian and Vegan food will be served

Funds help cover the cost of childcare, ASL interpretation and a modest donation to the speakers.

About the Presenter:
Alex S. Vitale is the author of City of Disorder: How the Quality of Life Campaign Transformed New York Politics and The End of Policing. He has spent the last 25 years writing about policing and consults both police departments and human rights organizations internationally, working at the cutting edge of theory and practice regarding policing and social change.
