The Couch Conversations Presents- Defund The Police: One Year Later

April 29th 2021

As we continue to reconcile with the glaringly disparate treatment of Black people by the police force in the United States, join NEBiP and Lieutenant Edwin Raymond of the New York Police Department, Mr. Sean Ellis, activist and subject of Netflix’s Trial 4 as well Mr. Zach Norris, author of Defund Fear: Safety Without Policing, Prisons, and Punishment, three leaders across various fields in the criminal justice sector to learn, from each of their perspectives, what Defund the Police means and how they see the future of criminal justice for Black Communities. Then, join the conversation as we discuss how Black philanthropy can help to further the conversation around policing and police brutality in order for us to ultimately create the world that we want to live in.
