You’ve heard of Defund the Police but what the heck does it mean? Is it calling for the abolishment of law enforcement? What is wrong with the current Police Services? Who do I call during an emergency? “Re-direct funding”…where would re-allocated funds go?

If these questions have been on your mind in recent days/weeks/months, the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU) invites you to join us on Wednesday, February 17 to have your questions addressed.

Speakers include:

Robyn Maynard – Canadian Author and Academic, El Jones – Spoken word poet, educator, journalist, and community activist, and Sarah Jama – Community organizer and advocate.
