With an increase in police violence and in the wake of Atatiana Jefferson’s murder, it is imperative that we educate communities on alternative resources to utilize other than calling the police. The DSA North Texas Racial Justice Working Group providing a workshop to educate the community on resources to utilize instead of law enforcement. It is unfortunate that we find ourselves in the position where people of color do not feel safe around police officers. However, it is our duty to help keep people safe from the police. Our first workshop will be in South Dallas due to the increased presence of police in a community of people of color.
We will be discussing the school to prison pipeline, the effects of criminalizing homelessness and mental illness and resources in Dallas that can be utilized instead of calling the police.
THIS EVENT IS FREE and children are welcome.
