Stop LAPD Spying w/ Prof. Dorothy Roberts: Police State, Race & Public Health in Time of COVID


The National Security Police State always uses crisis like this to expand oppression, to expand surveillance, accumulate new weapons, push boundaries and justify its violence.  Join us at Stop LAPD Spying Coalition over Zoom for our Power Not Paranoia webinar series - Part 8 on Tuesday May 12th at 6 PM.

We will be joined by Prof. Dorothy Roberts, an acclaimed scholar of race, gender, and the law. Her work focuses on health, social justice, and bioethics as they impact the lives of women, children and the Black community; Prof. Bita Amani, Ph.D., M.H.S from Charles Drew University and Co-Chair, COVID-19 Task force on Racism and Equity at UCLA; and Jamie Garcia R.N., BSN and organizer with Stop LAPD Spying Coalition.  We will be addressing questions and concerns such as:
  • How does race get disguised as a biological category versus a political one?
  • How is racial science programmed to “reconfigure” race rather than abandon it. And what it means in time of Covid-19?
  • How do “immunity passports” figure in the current scheme of surveillance and contact tracing?
