Struggling Against Police Terror: The Community Alert Patrol and its Initiation of Strategies to Police the Police, a conversation with Ron Wilkins
This event is presented with the support of the CSUSB Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Join us for a presentation and discussion with Ron Wilkins. Wilkins’ extensive background includes Pan African-African Internationalist organizing and revolutionary photo – journalism. His history includes heading the Los Angeles Community Alert Patrol, which was the first civilian group in the U.S. to police the police; Deputy-Chair positions in both the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and Patrice Lumumba Coalition; and Adjunct Professor positions on several Southern California campuses. His current area of specialization is exposing and building upon the incredibly beautiful yet hidden history of Black and Mexican Solidarity!
