Friday Update

What is Public Safety?
November 21, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. Online and In-Person

Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
In our month on non-violence, we turn to the question of what makes us safe from violence?  Is violence necessary to hold other violence at bay?  What actually reduces crime?  (and what is crime, anyway?).  A little Michele Foucault, a little Angela Davis, and some other ideas too.
