Organized by POLICED, a new public seminar series at the CUNY Graduate Center, housed by the Center for the Humanities. This seminar brings together participants from a wide range of backgrounds who work on issues of policing, prison abolition, safety and connected struggles for justice. Through learning and sharing our work together, we hope to gain new insights for engaged work that addresses new/potential solidarities.
