Defunding the Police

Join us Wednesday to hear from an incredible panel about why people around the world are calling to defund the police and to learn more about what defunding the police and alternative models for both public safety and community investments would mean for Toronto. 


Brought to us by Progress Toronto and Urban Alliance on Race Relations. This is a conversation with Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder and Vice Chair of the Black Legal Action Centre Sandy Hudson (bio), lawyer, professor, author, advocate and Chair in Indigenous Governance at Ryerson University Dr. Pamela Palmater (bio), writer and community organizer with Education Not Incarceration Phillip Dwight Morgan (bio), and Executive Director of Black Creek Community Health Centre Cheryl Prescod (bio). The conversation will be moderated by Toronto Star Digital Producer Angelyn Francis (bio). Before the panel begins, Co-Founder of No More Silence Audrey Huntley (bio), will also be joining us to share a few words.
