Leah, I would say that the idea that we need a police force to protect us and for it to be as bloated and hugely funded as it is SO unnecessary. We can create new systems where we put money on addressing the problems of public safety. And community defense and care will be possible.
Rory Nall
01:11:05
the police are mostly responding to nonviolent calls - noise issues, expired tags, etc. there's no reason for violence to happen, and yet... here we are. this is one part of how they are solely protecting white supremacy, capitalism, and the power imbalances that we are allowing to continue.

In Birmingham, I'm calling for a citizen police accountability board, to redirect the police budget to deal with nonviolent techniques to deal with crime, use alternative policing methods such as community policing, violence reduction initiatives, and problem solving policing, and to force the city council to exercise their power to investigate the police department and audit their budget.

It will take ruthlessness. It will take hard decisions and some violence. The other side. and there is an other side…are armed and dangerous. The people of color have faced off against them alone…if white privileged people truly get into this, it will be rough…You may have to have your children not get all the breaks, in means sharing the American Dream…it can be done, but a webinar is not the only answer as you all know…Watch Grant on History Channel if you wonder what the price could be....
Bob Reeg
01:19:57
thanks for those making suggestions of alternatives to policing. I am familiar with restorative justice, but not transformative justice, so I will look into that. and I also know something about mutual aid. I guess I am "worried" about who does a person being victimized in the moment (such as violence in the home) call for intervention?

“We know the value of workshops where people learn history and come to understand the roots of racism. But other groups do that, and we think people learn in action too. Our goal is to create an antiracist majority…we do not have to have a majority of whites to have that majority, but we need significant numbers. So there must be a constantly visible force toward which people can move.”-- Anne Braden 1996

from Diana Gameros @dianagameros on insta: “I dream of a world where people are sacred human beings. We we celebrate them, and for migrants we throw a big, badass party by the ocean. And we lay flowers by their feet.” Our goal is a new world of joy, reconciliation, land restoration. Much love. Much fire.
