NJ 11th For Change Hosts Live Webinar ‘Defending Democracy: Transforming Public Safety’

Why is police violence so common in America, and disproportionately wielded against the Black community? What do people mean by “defund police?” How can we fix systemic problems in our law enforcement system, and what would a re-envisioned system look like?

Few issues are this important to the future of our country. NJ 11th for Change hosts this free Zoom webinar exploring problems and solutions, providing a foundation for productive conversations in viewers’ own communities.

Award-winning interviewer Julie Burstein will talk with Andrea McChristian, the Law & Policy Director of the New Jersey Institute of Social Justice, and NJ 11th for Change member Laura Merz, a military law-enforcement officer with over 15 years of experience in a proven system that may be exactly the model America needs.
