Past Events

  • July 26, 2022 (Tuesday, 6:00pm) Wealth Inequality and Gun Violence - popular education forum by Amistad Movement Power, exploring how wealth inequality fuels gun violence. Poverty and the inequality of both wealth and resources are strongly correlated with violence. When we look at the neighborhoods hardest hit by gun violence there are certain things that come into view. Most of these communities are poor, most of them are Black, brown and people of color and most of them are situated in places where vast wealth is just across town. When we look at the bigger picture it becomes clear that much gun violence is a deeply structural issue tied to inequality, racism and poverty.
    So why do public policy makers focus on punishing 'bad' individuals and disparaging neighborhoods as having a 'culture of violence'? And what practical things can we do to disrupt the cycle of violence and help our communities take back their power?
    See details and registration here.
  • July 20, 2022 (Wednesday, 2:00-2:30pm) What if we truly centered equity in pretrial reform?

Ending mass incarceration requires challenging racial inequalities head-on. How and where do we start? This dynamic 30-minute conversation will dig into what collaboration and co-creation look like when we put racial equity at the heart of pretrial reform. Register for this Zoom event here.
