Join us during the American Public Health Association annual meeting to take action in support of local and national campaigns that are creating community safety by advocating for divestment from mass punishment, detainment, and incarceration and investment in thriving communities and racial justice. During this 90-minute virtual event, you’ll have the opportunity to take action via social media, emails, texts, and other types of online engagement. And you’ll learn about how you can get involved in the growing national movement to reimagine and redesign community safety through racial justice.
