Description: Police unions are an issue across all social change that communities and philanthropy care about and support. This session is part two to the June 15th’s training which was an introductory course on police unions and associations – exploring their history, purpose, how they function and their landscape of influence. You can still join the session if you weren’t able to make part one. Folks who register will have access to the part one recording!
Our facilitator will be Maurice BP-Weeks, who is the Labor & Abolition Fellow at Interrupting Criminalization, which links together anti-capitalist and abolitionist analysis and campaigning through narrative intervention, campaign support/technical assistance, and the building of lasting infrastructure for anti-capitalist fights in various subsets of work connected to abolition. This session will navigate the intersections between police associations and the labor movement, supporting participants in navigating the interests and concerns of labor unions, and how funders can best resource movement organizations that are engaging the labor sector.
