Who do you turn to for justice when law enforcement is the perpetrator?
Join activists from North and Central America in El Salvador to strategize on how communities can learn from one other and collaborate to fight back against police brutality and other forms of state violence. With a human rights framework, we will discuss the ways police militarization and mass incarceration disproportionately affects the poor and people of color in different cultural contexts. The seminar includes visits to Salvadoran communities organizing in response to state violence, time at important sites in the historical struggle for human rights in El Salvador, and opportunities for the exchange of best practices and the development of new ideas and strategies with other human rights activists participating in the seminar.
