COMMUNITY POLICING UNCOVERED
How Surveillance, Displacement and Counterinsurgency Happens in Our Cities.
Our communities know how brutal our police systems are and have been rising up to demand new visions of community safety and care. Less understood is the history and harms of reforms like community policing - a counter-revolutionary attempt to legitimize policing. Militarized counterinsurgency and surveillance tactics are impacting neighborhoods daily. From housing displacement and gentrification to corporate power and incarceration, these systems are long-term strategies to increase police funding rather than invest in communities. Watch a new video telling this story and hear from community leaders in Los Angeles about efforts to reclaim resources. How do we shift power to get what we need and deserve, to heal and thrive? Featuring the newly launched NO CSP video and a live performance by King Jaybo.
