Policing the Police: Solidarity with Communities Against Police Violence

May 30, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

Join us for a community conversation on the recent settlement agreement awarding $9.25 million to protestors and West Philly residents who were victims of police violence during the 2020 peaceful protests for racial justice. We will discuss what this historic win means for our communities and the impact of police brutality and militarism. Plaintiff Amelia Carter's documentary, “Testimony: 52nd St. and the Invisible Violence of UPenn” will also be screened at the event. Together, we will reflect on accountability and next steps.

The event is free, but RSVP is recommended.

Pizza will be provided by Down North Pizza, a mission-led restaurant exclusively employing formerly incarcerated individuals while providing career opportunities at a fair wage and equitable workplace.
