Register to attend

In the wake of brutal and, in many cases, deadly examples of police violence against Black and Indigenous people, there has been a wave of public outcry calling for immediate action to address anti‑Black and anti‑Indigenous policing practices across Canada. Some conversations have included defunding the police, robust civilian oversight bodies to hold police accountable, serious legal questions about the jurisdiction of colonial policing forces on Indigenous lands, and more.

Join us for a digital teach-in bringing together organizers and lawyers from across the country to engage... in a discussion around policing Black and Indigenous people in Canada.

Relying on their on-the-ground experience and legal expertise, speakers will address the role of policing in expanding the colonial state, the evidence of police violence and discrimination, current strategies for transformative change, and how people can get involved in the movement.

Register here.

We would also like to acknowledge that this event will feature speakers and attendees situated on various Indigenous lands and will be inviting everyone to acknowledge the territory from which they join during the event.

Hope to see you there.
