WCDP Monthly Meeting and Community Forum: Organized Labor, Policing and the Community

September 5, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

What role should organized labor play in the movement to improve modern policing? How can organized labor help to address problems of violence and racial discrimination? What role should organized labor play in improving the relationship between communities and police? How can the tools of organized labor—-including collective bargaining and collective action—improve police accountability? What role should police unions play in that process?

This event will explore these questions through a roundtable discussion among local organized labor leaders, including a police union representative, a police chief, and activists. Participants will discuss problems with policing in Washtenaw County and ways to make positive change. They will especially consider the relationship between police and organized labor and discuss the role of police unions in the labor movement more broadly.

Among the presenters: Ann Arbor Chief of Police, Michael Cox
Ian Robinson, PhD, Professor, University of Michigan and local labor activist
Nora Krinitsky, PhD, Interim Director, Prison Creative Arts Project, University of Michigan
