This panel is being held in regards to the proposal by Campus public safety to add a Police force in addition to CPSO to Portland State University. At this panel we will be discussing why prisons and policing are never an appropriate response to dealing with crime in our communities, how these institutions uphold and maintain systems of oppression the create the conditions for crime, and how these institutions alienate the community and take the power away from the people. We will be discussing concepts such as transformative justice, and community accountability and focusing on how to address Sexual assault without utilizing the police. The panel will be made up of local community organizers, authors, scholars, and professors who do work around accountability, conflict resolution, and resisting the prison industrial complex.
