State Violence and Criminalized Communities

State-sanctioned violence through increased incarceration, policing and police brutality, and surveillance has deliberately targeted communities of color, especially youth, people engaged in street economies, and LGBTQ communities. Join this panel of activists representing organizations from New Orleans to New York that have mobilized against criminalization and policing to explore the intersections of reproductive justice and state violence. Community-driven work discussed will include Stop and Frisk policies and #BlackLivesMatter organizing.
