LOS ANGELES– Panel Discussion: The End of Policing in Los Angeles

April 28, 2018 @ 7:00 am9:30 am

LOS ANGELES– In his book, The End of Policing, author Alex Vitale asserts that public safety is jeopardized by the “dramatic and unprecedented expansion and intensity of policing in the last forty years that constitutes a fundamental shift in the role of police in society. The problem is policing itself.”
The conversation will explore common sense alternatives to militaristic policing, solutions that create safe neighborhoods and save public dollars.

The author will present his book and discuss it with you and discussants:
Ivette Alé, Californians United for a Responsible Budget (CURB coalition)
Kim McGill, Youth Justice Coalition
Alex S. Vitale, author of The End of Policing
Laura Ramos, Critical Resistance LA
moderated by Mohamed Shehk, Critical Resistance

Please share the Facebook event widely. We will have books for sale. 100% book sales go to CRLA thanks to generous Verso Books donation.
This event is presented by Critical Resistance and LA Poverty Department.
