    5 Common Misconceptions About Defund the Police

    5 Common Misconceptions About Defund the Police

    In this episode I’ll share 5 common misconceptions about Defund the Police and share a bit of history of the slogan as well. The goal is to continue our learning journey as it relates to Social Justice education topics being discussed today in different communities by sharing information I’ve learned. 

    As always, I am sharing more resources of experts and activists on racism and anti-racism below. 

    Resources


    No White Savior - To understand that anti-racism work is essential worldwide, No White Saviors is a platform based in Uganda that challenges the White Savior Complex (WSC) and centers and uplifts African people. It identifies and provides critical feedback around the WSC and dismantles harmful systems through public and legal action. https://nowhitesaviors.org/
    Austin Channing Brown - The author of “I’m Still Here,” Austin Channing Brown’s writing and speaking combines racial justice, faith, and Black womanhood. She’s also the creator of “The Next Question,” a video series that expands and deepens the conversation about racial justice. http://austinchanning.com/
    DeRay Mckesson - DeRay Mckesson is a leading voice in the Black Lives Matter movement, a  co-founder of Campaign Zero, and co-host of “Pod Save The People.” He is  also the author of “On The Other Side Of Freedom,”  a book that draws from his experience as an activist, organizer,  educator, and public official to dismantle racism and build a better  world. https://deray.com/
    From Privilege To Progress - This platform was founded in 2018 after the founders witnessed the  arrest of two innocent Black men. With a mission to “desegregate the  conversation about race” and to further education around anti-racism,  From Privilege to Progress recommends resources, amplifies stories, and  encourages readers to show up. https://fromprivilegetoprogress.org/
