Safer Communities through Racial Justice: Coordinated Virtual Action
Monday, October 26, 2020
1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Join the Dornsife School of Public Health during the American Public Health Association annual meeting to take action in support of local and national campaigns that are creating community safety by advocating for divestment from mass punishment, detainment, and incarceration and investment in thriving communities and racial justice.
During this virtual event, you’ll have the opportunity to take action via social media, emails, texts, and other types of online engagement. And you’ll learn about how you can get involved in the growing national movement to reimagine and redesign community safety through racial justice.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Greg Jackson, Jr., National Advocacy Director, Community Justice Action Fund. CJAF has most recently been involved in racial justice efforts in Kenosha and other parts of Wisconsin
- Sari Bilick, Senior Public Health Organizer, Human Impact Partners. Sari will share and encourage action on California’s Schools and Communities First (Prop 15) campaign and the national Defend The Vote campaign
- Dr. Howard Pinderhughes, Professor, Social Behavioral Sciences, University of California at San Francisco, Brotherhood of Elders Network Leadership Council member, and vice-chair of the Prevention Institute board of directors.
More speakers to be announced!
