1) Copwatch DeCal

Copwatch DeCal

Starts tonight!!!
The facilitators of the Legal Studies 198 – Copwatch: Community Based Accountability Decal are highly encouraging students to enroll in the class. The class description is as follows:
Through a combination of class presentations by leading activists in the alternative justice movement and direct field monitoring of police on duty, students will experience first hand the complex issues faced by residents caught between high crime in their neighborhoods and the dangers that racial profiling, civil and human rights abuses bring to the community. Students will be trained in basic criminal procedure, power analysis, and techniques for observing police activity. In addition, students will examine the history and origins of police, resistance movements, and community based alternatives to the justice system as we know it.
The class will be on Mondays from 5-6:30pm with a start date of Monday, September 14. The syllabus can be found by clicking HERE. Students will receive 2-units for their participation. You can reach out to Tommy (they/she) at tc2000@berkeley.edu and Noah (he/him) at nbbrown@berkeley.edu if you have questions.

GP&P Minor Info Sess.

Cal Students,

We invite you to learn about the Global Poverty & Practice Minor!

The GPP Minor introduces students to the theoretical frameworks, methods, and practical skills necessary to engage with global poverty and inequality in effective ways.

The minor requires five courses and a “Practice Experience.”  This experience is a central component of the minor in which students partner with domestic or international non-governmental or community organizations, government agencies, or other poverty or development programs, on various dimensions of poverty action – from food security and sustainable technologies to economic justice and grass-roots political power.  The combination of the coursework for the minor and this real world experience allows students to connect theories and practices of poverty action. Funding is available to support students’ practice experiences.

The deadline to declare the minor this semester is Wednesday, October 14th.  There are no prerequisites required to declare.

The Declaration Form and additional information about the minor can be found at: http://blumcenter.berkeley.edu/gppminor.

Information Sessions about the minor will be held on Zoom at the following times (Zoom sessions linked):

All Info Session Details can also be found on the GPP Website.

Contact gppminor@berkeley.edu with any questions.
