Re-Imagining Public Safety: A night of learning on defunding the police
October 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
If you imagined a city budget that aligned with your values, what topics would you invest in? Since the murder of George Floyd and the protests throughout the summer, you may have heard people calling for a particular budgeting change: defund the police. So what exactly does it mean to defund? Join Mishkan and JCUA for an exploration of the current state of policing in Chicago, the city budgeting process, and where the defund movement fits in. We’ll also discuss next steps for those who are interested in working on police accountability with Mishkan.
