Understanding “Defund the Police” with Alex S. Vitale (with RYSEC)

The Brooklyn Society Ethical Culture will be attending The Riverdale-Yonkers Society For Ethical Culture’s platform this week.

You’ve likely heard the calls for defunding the police, during this summer’s demonstrations against police killings.  You may agree and wonder how we could get there, or you may think that defunding goes too far, or you may just wonder what it means.  Whatever your reaction, here’s a chance to find out more.

Alex S. Vitale will be our guest speaker on this morning. Professor Vitale, who teaches in the Department of Sociology at Brooklyn College and has researched and written about the future of policing for 30 years, will explain the “defund the police” movement and its relationship to the long struggle for racial and economic justice.
