Know Your Responsbilities Copwatch training
March 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Do you want to be more involved in community-based efforts to resist police violence? Are you curious about what steps New Yorkers can take every day to watch out for each other? JFREJ’s Copwatching Working Group would like to invite you to our Know Your Responsibilities training on Sunday, March 12, 2017 from 2:00-5:00PM, 808 Nostrand Ave, Brooklyn. All are welcome! Copwatching involves observing, recording, intervening and offering support when your fellow New Yorkers are stopped by the police. Everyday copwatching is that radical and mundane act of watching out for each other!
What will this training involve?
-Learn the fundamentals of Know Your Rights
-Develop your skills for copwatching through practice, role plays, and discussion
-Understand the history and philosophy behind copwatching as a movement to counter state violence
-Build community with fellow copwatchers
The event is capped at 30 people. Please RSVP if you plan to attend, and only attend if you RSVP. Light snacks will be provided (feel free to bring your own, too!).
