Building Momentum from the Ground Up: A Toolkit for Transformative Change in Policing

Communities across the country that have lived for too long under the weight of discriminatory policing and mass incarceration are calling for a transformation of our policing and criminal justice systems — including meaningful oversight of law enforcement, accountability, an end to the criminalization of communities of color, and investments beyond federally-sponsored tanks and additional police. To support the efforts of community organizations and elected officials, the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) and PolicyLink created "Building Momentum from the Ground Up: A Toolkit for Promoting Justice in Policing." The toolkit is a direct response to organizers, elected officials, and community members from across the country seeking support and resources for campaigns aimed at transforming the policies and practices of local law enforcement.
Join PolicyLink and CPD for a webinar that will explore the toolkit’s policy areas and train attendees on how it can be used to advocate for transformative change.
Speakers include:
--Cam Gordon, Minneapolis City Council
--Monifa Bandele, Malcolm X Grassroots, Communities United for Police Reform
--Alyssa Aguilera, VOCAL NY
--Kim McGill, Youth Justice Coalition
--Mark Anthony, Dignity and Power Now
