When We Fight, We Win!: The Podcast S2, Episode 4, PART 1: Abolishing the Police, #CopsOffCampus

In this two part episode, we devote our conversation to the importance of Abolishing the Police in all of its forms. A world without cops is a step forward to live in a safe, inclusive, accountable, and thriving society.

 

Part 1 focuses on the importance of abolishing the police inside campus, at the universities. We go to Los Angeles to interview student activist, Oceana Gilliam and UCLA professor Ananya Roy.

 

Our story begins in June 2020, when the LAPD used the Jackie Robinson Stadium as a field jail to detain Black Lives Matter activists. This was during protests demanding justice after the recent killing of George Floyd by police officers. Meanwhile, students, faculty, and staff at the University of California are organizing to get #CopsOffCampus by Fall 2021.

The word of the day is philanthropy. Philanthropy is the transfer of resources from wealthy individuals, usually through organizations called foundations to social movements and organizations. These organizations are typically classified in the United States as non-profits exempting them from taxes and exposing them to government regulation and control.
