“Public safety” has often been used to justify increasing police presence in communities of color, prosecuting quality of life offenses, and continuing the crisis of mass incarceration. After decades of policies reinforcing increased interactions with the criminal justice system, it is clear that these policies are not working. Join the San Francisco chapter of the ACLU and its guest panelists as we explore how alternatives to policing and incarceration are ultimately more effective ways to promote public safety for all of us.
Light dinner and refreshments will be provided.
