Presented by the Disability & Philanthropy Forum

Disabled people make up a disproportionately high rate of the prison population, and it is estimated that 50% of people killed by police have a disability. As we witness a continuing increase in mass incarceration of and police violence against disabled people, especially those who hold multiple marginalized identities, we must urgently take action to shift these deeply harmful trends. We must dismantle the systemic racism and ableism that criminalizes disabled people.

Join Judy Belk, President and CEO of The California Wellness Foundation, for an open, honest dialogue with disability advocates on policing and mass incarceration through the lenses of disability rights and disability justice.
