On Monday, December 13 at 5:30pm, join Occidental College Professors Seva Rodnyansky and Jorgen Harris on the presentation of the report: Glendale Arrests: Prevalence, Racial Disparities, and Implications, An Analysis of Arrests From 2011 to 2019 in Glendale, CA. Hosted by YWCA Glendale and Pasadena and the Coalition for an Anti-Racist Glendale.
An engaging conversation and discussion on the potential reasons for arrest data differences between Glendale and Los Angeles: Glendale's arrest trends stayed the same between 2011 and 2019 while neighboring Los Angeles' have decreased by almost half during the same period. Glendale's main arrest charges have not shifted much over time, while Los Angeles has reduced arrests in Drug, Property, and All Other charges.
The Coalition for an Anti-Racist Glendale will present its policy recommendations and a community story for how an anti-racist Glendale looks like.
About Data Gathering and Analysis
Social justice organizations in Glendale, CA, presented a formal request to City Hall on June 16, 2020, to access the Glendale Police Department's arrest data for the past ten years. In 2021, the founding organizations of the Coalition for an Anti-Racist Glendale partnered with professors and students at Occidental College to analyze the 10-year data logs. The report is the result of this partnership.
