Join us for the first webinar in our 2019 series, "Connecting the Dots: Border Militarism, US Domestic and Foreign Policy, and the Myriad of Connections to Racial Capitalism."
We are so pleased to have Andrea Ritchie joining us again for an overview of the history of policing in the US and how that history continues to impact the role of policing in the US today.
