Social Justice Corner

 

  • Tune in for a real conversation this Thursday, 4/29 at 7pm, about what public safety means, and how it is best achieved with special guests Ken Lawson and Minda Yamaga and moderated by Carrie Ann Shirota. This is the first of a series of conversations around reimagining what public safety looks like. Many people think of a police response when they hear “public safety”, but often times police are not the best response for the situation and can lead to more harm. Our goal in this series is a reimagined public safety system – one that moves away from enforcement where it can be avoided, and toward vital services to communities that need them.
