Bearing Witness: Testimony to Activism Townhall

25oct6:30 pm9:30 pmBearing Witness: Testimony to Activism TownhallParticipants in "Witnessing", a public art installation by Bradley McCallum, rejoin him 23-years after they first shared their stories of police brutality and misconduct.

Event Details

Please join us as we consider the role of testimony, art and activism, as participants in Bradley McCallum’s Witnessing public art project rejoin him 23-years after they first shared their stories of police brutality and misconduct in this special townhall. How has testimony shaped the speakers’ life-long struggle for police reform and accountability?
 

How do the remastered testimonies resonate today and looking back what accomplishments have been made and how do we find inspiration to continue the struggle for police accountability.  As survivors who channeled their grief into activism, what advice does Iris Baez and Margarita Rosario have for other families whose children have been killed and what strategies for police reform has Charles Billups found effective. As artists, how can we effectively amplify the voices of others as we join in this struggle?

 
Speakers:
Iris Baez: Mother of Anthony Baez (1994) and founder of the Anthony Baez Foundation who has remained on the front lines of police reform for the past 28-years.
Margarita Rosario: Mother of Anthony Rosario who was killed by the police in 1995 who was active in the police reform movement during the decade that followed her son’s killing. 
Charles Billups:  Retired New York City Police officer and Chairperson of the Grand Council of Guardians who fights for police reform from within the ranks of the police department.  
Isabelle Leyva: Senior Organizer at the  New York Civil Liberties Union
Yojaira Alvarez: Senior Advisor & Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) of New York City.
