Defunding the VPD

5:30pm - 6:30pm

Many Vancouverites are joining a North American movement to defund the police.

But in what ways will defunding the police make life safer for Black, Indigenous and other marginalized folks in Vancouver? And can it even be done? In this episode of Seeking Office, we get perspective from Lama Mugabo of the Hogan's Alley Society, Meenakshi Mannoe of PIVOT Legal Society, Vancouver City Councillor Pete Fry and University of Winnipeg professor Kevin Walby.
