Rising Tide's study session: The History of the Police on July 15th
Join Rising Tide for their second community study session, "The History of the Police, Their Role in Society, & What a World Looks Like Without Them."
In this study session, we plan to dig into how and why the institution of the police was created, what they actually do in society vs. what we are told they do, and some examples of alternatives to the police. We will look at historical & contemporary examples of societies without police, data & statistics about police interactions with the public, and alternative institutions and the potential for them to replace the current institution of policing.
The session will take place on Wednesday, July 15th at 7pm.
