Disrupting Carceral Systems: Criminal Surveillance of Black Communities
Thursday, May 06, 2021, 3:00 PM until 4:30 PM
From the juvenile legal and dependency systems, immigration, housing, and the criminal legal system, Black children, families, and communities are surveilled and forced to barter their freedoms to receive essential resources. Join the Black Public Defender Association as we discuss the government surveillance of Black communities within the carceral systems that Black public defenders fight to disrupt. We will hear from Black public defenders, civil rights experts, and directly impacted advocates and learn how we can engage the Biden-Harris Administration to dismantle these destructive carceral systems.
