Reimagining Policing in a Just World

July 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Reimagining Policing POSTER450

You are invited to a timely dialogue entitled Reimagining Policing in a Just World that will take place online on Monday, July 27, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Our distinguished guests are Catherine Meeks and Andrea J. Ritchie, who will engage in a courageous and necessary conversation about the state of policing in our nation. Dr. Meeks is the Executive Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing in Atlanta, and Ms. Ritchie is an attorney and author who is currently a Researcher-in-Residence at the Social Justice Institute at the Barnard Center for Research on Women.

If we seek to dismantle racism and heal from its wounds, the role of law enforcement must be central to our conversation. The most recent killings have sparked protests in nearly every American city, and have reignited the movement for civil rights in our communities. Yet, because violence and degradation against Black people is enmeshed in our history, it will take hard work and commitment to establish a truly civil society in which the benefits of public safety extend to all.

Our presenters will provide handles and hope for a way forward.

Registration is required at bit.ly/reimaginingwebinar.

Hosted by St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church and Pro-Cathedral and sponsored by St. Mark’s Deanery and the Community Justice Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island.

Catherine Meeks, PhD, is the Executive Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing in Atlanta. Prior to the center’s opening she chaired its precursor, Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism for the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. Dr. Meeks brings four decades of experience to the work of transforming the dismantling racism work in Atlanta. The core of her work has been with people who have been marginalized because of economic status, race, gender or physical ability as they pursue liberation, justice and access to resources that can help lead them to health, wellness and a more abundant life. This work grows out of her understanding of her call to the vocation of teacher as well as her realization that all of humanity is one family which God desires to unite.

Andrea J. Ritchie is a Black lesbian immigrant police misconduct attorney, author and organizer whose writing, litigation, and advocacy have focused on policing and criminalization of women and LGBTQ people of color for the past two decades. Most recently Ritchie co-authored the report SayHerName: Police Violence against Black Women and Women of Color with Kimberle Crenshaw and the African American Policy Forum. In 2017, Ritchie published Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color. She has published two other books, along with numerous articles, policy reports and research studies. She is currently a Researcher-in-Residence at the Social Justice Institute at the Barnard Center for Research on Women.
