War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing
Every year, billions of dollars' worth of military equipment flows from the federal government to state and local police departments. Departments use these wartime weapons in everyday policing, especially to fight the wasteful and failed drug war, which has unfairly targeted people of color.
We invite you to "War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing," a special presentation and discussion featuring Kara Dansky, Senior Counsel at the ACLU Center for Justice.
RSVP on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's time for American police to remember that they are supposed to protect and serve our communities, not wage war on the people who live in them.
