Rethinking Anti-Violence: Co-creating Safer, Inclusive Cities
November 27, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmfree
How do we better center violence prevention work in the New Urbanism/Smart Growth movement? What does it look like to co-create safer, more inclusive urban spaces that actively dismantle day-to-day violence in our communities including street harassment, sexual assault, racial profiling, police brutality, homicide, robbery, domestic violence and hate crimes.
How do we center our movement on the pillars of peace and compassion, as we work to address violence at a systemic and interpersonal level?
This month’s Rethinking the City panel, including representatives from QLatinx, the Victim Services Center of Central Florida, the League of Women Voters, the Valencia Peace and Justice Institute, Let Your Voice Be Heard and the Trust Orlando Coalition, will participate in a dialogue about existing anti-violence infrastructure in Central Florida and discuss how urban planning, design and development can better support inclusive, community-centered violence prevention work.
Moderator: Christopher Cuevas – QLatinx
Rachel Allen – Valencia College Peace and Justice Institute
Patti Brigham – League of Women Voters of Florida
Rasha Mubarak – Trust Orlando Coalition
Miles Mulrain – Let Your Voice Be Heard, Inc.
Bianca Sabrkhani – Victim Service Center of Central Florida, Inc.
