TaserFreeBerkeleygraphic2PUBLIC FORUM:

SHOULD BERKELEY POLICE USE TASERS ON

THE PEOPLE OF BERKELEY?

 

Thursday September 4th at 7pm

1939 Addison St, Berkeley, CA 94704

(two blocks from BART)

 

Berkeley Police are asking the City Council for tasers. The City Council wants a study. Some critics believe that tasers are part of the militarization of our city. The Coalition for a Taser Free Berkeley is convening a diverse panel to discuss their experiences with tasers and to help Berkeley make an informed decision about whether to acquire the weapons. We invite members of the public, city employees and even police officers who are genuinely concerned about how tasers will affect the community to attend, ask questions and participate.

 

Panelists include:

 

  • Aram James, Activist and former Public Defender Palo Alto
  • Barbara Ann White, Berkeley NAACP Vice President and Community Mental Health Professional
  • James Chanin. Founding member of the Police Review Commission, Civil Rights lawyer
  • Jeremy Miller, Program Director, Idriss Stelley Foundation, Co-organizer of the successful campaign to stop San Francisco from getting tasers

 

 

This event is free and open to the public. It is wheelchair accessible.
