The presenters will be sharing their thoughts, experience and substantive knowledge in an open discussion panel format on police accountability, including the issues of:

  • challenging criminalization and policing from a campaign perspective; 
  • seeing the Defund Movement as a material attempt to shift our collective and shared approaches to inequality, especially anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism; 
  • being aware of the host of oppresions that inform the concept of "law and order";
  • reflections on the Campbell decision, the ongoing needs of Indigenous Peoples vis-a-vis policing, and how to be good allies;
  • the importance of Gladue decisions in justice reform; implications of the criminalization of sex work, among other related topics.
