Community Control Over Police
Saturday June 16, 4:30 PM to 5:50 PM – Sondheim 107

In form and in function, Black communities are a domestic colony inside of the United States – where we are forcefully segregated, exploited for cheap labor and criminalized and incarcerated without cause or consent. Within this domestic colony, the colonial relationship of exploitation and oppression is enforced by an occupying force: the police. The only way Black communities can represent and enforce their interests is to shift power so that they have control over their own police departments. This session will discuss the need for and campaign strategies to achieve community control over policing so that Black communities can exercise the human right of self-determination.
