|Our Racial Justice and Immigration Focus Group hosted an opportunity to watch a webinar from UUA’s Side With Love and then gather in a Zoom meeting with First UUers afterward for discussion.
Conversation with Zach Norris, author of Defund Fear: Safety Without Policing, Prisons, and Punishment (Beacon Press). Zach Norris is the executive director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which creates campaigns related to civic engagement, violence prevention, juvenile justice, and police brutality, with a goal of shifting economic resources away from prisons and punishment and towards economic opportunity. He is also the cofounder of Restore Oakland and Justice for Families, both of which focus on the power of community action. This Webinar is part of Side With Love’s 30 Days of Love: https://sidewithlove.org/week-two
