Featuring Alisa Bierria and Aminah Elster

Does the grassroots demand to defund the police include systems of policing in prisons, schools, homes, and healthcare? How can defunding the police across punitive contexts create safer conditions for survivors of domestic and sexual violence? Join scholars and organizers Alisa Bierria and Aminah Elster to explore how a Black feminist theory of safety highlights connections between multiple forms of policing in survivors’ lives, and how a feminist political movement to divest from policing can enable survivors’ freedom and self-determination.
