May 13: Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land on Defunding the Police: Who defines Safety

What could it look like to defund the Winnipeg Police Service and build alternative capacities in its place? This talk will provide an overview of some of the history, theory, evidence, and community safety practices informing local and global social movement demands to abolish the police.

Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land is Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Winnipeg and a member of Bar None, a local abolitionist organization. She researchers criminal justice policy, community safety and alternatives to policing. Dobchuk-Land is a CCPA Manitoba Research Associate.
