Defund and Reallocate: A community discussion about the police with El Jones and Alma Brooks
In June, as hundreds of people across New Brunswick rallied for Black Lives Matter, Chantel Moore, a member of Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation, and Rodney Levi, a member of Metepenagiag First Nation, were killed by the police in New Brunswick.
Join us for a conversation with spoken word poet, educator, journalist and activist El Jones and Wolastoqiyik clan mother Alma Brooks on the police killings and defunding the police. What does defunding the police mean? Why is defunding the police important? How does it work?
