Law enforcement officers enact violence on people and communities by criminalizing certain identities in categories such as race, class, Indigeneity, immigration status, gender and gender conformity, and physical and mental ability, to name but a few, as well as by targeting people who resist and critique this unjust system.
While our “rights” according to the US Constitution were not written for, and are not meaningfully applied to, most of us in this movement, knowing these rights as part of an ongoing practice of legal self-defense can help us stay as safe as possible in a system where we are targeted for our existence and our resistance.
Join us for a conversation to share legal self-defense best practices and to critique the role of police in stabilizing an oppressive status quo.
Bring your QUESTIONS!
