UWSA Actionar: Policing in Austin & the Upcoming City Budget Process (Part 1 of 2)

Start: Wednesday, July 08, 2020 6:30 PM Central Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)

End: Wednesday, July 08, 2020 7:30 PM Central Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)


As conversations about defunding the police continue, UWSA is looking closer at how white people specifically fit into this change process in Austin. This is meant to be the start of an on-going discussion as we reimagine what public safety can look like in our community.

Join us for a two-part Actionar about policing in Austin and the upcoming Austin budget process. (An actionar is like an interactive webinar + action steps. We’re learning and taking action!)

Part 1: July 8th, 6:30-7:30 pm

  • Explore and reflect on the intersection of white supremacy culture and policing

  • Discuss accountability to BIPOC-led organizations

  • Connect broader anti-racist conversations to the current discussion about the future of the Austin Police Department and this year’s city budget process

Before you attend:

What to bring:

  • Curiosity

  • A commitment to dismantling white supremacy

  • A pen and paper
