Defund the police: what does it mean for you?
Why we are doing this
People in our community have a lot of questions and concerns related to the recent NYPD actions during Black Lives Matter protests and during Queer Liberation March this year.

The lack of information and knowledge often leads people to unfortunate conclusions, misconceptions, and prejudices, not to mention online bullying and even violent actions.

RUSA LGBT hosted an online panel discussion to address some of these concerns to better understand what options we have available when it comes to police violence and police reform in the United States.
