The past several months have brought questions about the role of policing into public conversation. Calls to “abolish” prisons, “defund” police, and build “police-free schools” have raised many questions about public safety and crime prevention. Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A about the central demand of the Movement for Black Lives of defunding the police, with special attention to the role of policing in schools.
