Ape Goes to Out of Sight – Policing Poverty in Victoria May 12, 2012

How do policing and the criminal justice system touch the lives of people who are street-involved? Are there reports of racial and social profiling in Victoria? How is public space policed? What role do policing and the courts play in addressing poverty? What needs to change? And how can we do something about?

Come bring your questions and ideas to an evening discussion with street interviewers, organizers and researchers from the “Out of Sight: Policing Poverty in Victoria” project.

About the research project

“Out of Sight: Policing Poverty” is a community research project that takes a close look at how policing and the criminal justice system intersect with the lives of street-involved people in Victoria, Coast and Straits Salish Territories. Through over 100 peer interviews, the project opens a space for the experiences and perspectives of street-involved people to take center-stage in our communities’ efforts to build a better understanding of policing, criminal justice and poverty.
