Join us: Sanctuary Everywhere Live!

A free webinar series on creating safer, more inclusive communities
New video

Do police keep us safe?

Join us to examine policing with the staff of Critical Resistance, who will walk us through their powerful police abolition workshop. They will define policing, examine the timeline and history of the police, practice interrupting individual instances of police harassment of people in the community, and consider policy intervention.

AFSC staff and partners will also discuss their involvement in local campaigns like Stop Urban Shield in San Francisco and #NoCopAcademy in Chicago, as well as federal policy.
