Defunding the Police: Rethinking Community Safety
May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
“Defunding the Police: Rethinking Community Safety” is the third event in our Danforth Multifaith Commons social justice speakers series. The Danforth Multifaith Commons includes the DJC, East End United Regional Ministry, and Neighbourhood Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
Ginelle Skerritt, ED at Warden Woods Community Centre and Vice President of The Neighbourhood Group, will share the recommendations of a report endorsed by dozens of community agencies and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, which showed how diverting money from the police budget to services supporting racialized communities, homeless people, youth and people with mental health issues could make our communities safer.
