Abolition of Policing – Facebook Event

Cielo Gallery/Studios
3201 Maple Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90011

Want to learn how to work toward eliminating the cops? Want to hear how we challenge the notion that policing keeps us safe? This workshop looks at the role and history of policing in the U.S., the way it has impacted various communities, and how people have resisted and challenged its inherent violence. The workshop also goes over how we can reduce our reliance on policing by highlighting the various ways that building up community strength and practices lead to true safety that does not depend on law enforcement.

LA No More Jails Coalition meeting
Chuco’s Justice Center
1137 E. Redondo Blvd.
Inglewood, CA 90302

The Los Angeles No More Jails Coalition is made up of a diverse group of organizations and community members working to stop jail expansion in L.A. County. Los Angeles County has the largest jail system in the world. Yet, county officials are planning to expand the system and squander over $3 billion in construction costs alone. Because imprisonment is fundamentally violent, we are working to reduce the number of people locked up in Los Angeles.

We encourage the participation and leadership of people who have been imprisoned, and family and community members with imprisoned loved ones. We also encourage the participation of organizations working to build healthy, self-reliant communities in LA County.
