О курсе

The tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have sparked a wave of renewed protests against police brutality across the United States. These nationwide uprisings have transformed into an intense interest from the public around understanding systemic racism and abuse of power. Millions of Americans and people around the world are watching incidents of police violence and excessive force captured on video, but are looking to learn about the inequalities at the root of these incidents. While the calls of Black Lives Matter protesters to #DefundThePolice are being heard for the first time by many Americans, they are part of a longstanding effort by communities and activists to reinvest in communities rather than policing and prisons. In this course, you will learn about the history of police violence in America, become aware of laws and policies that prevent accountability, understand the demands of protesters, and gain the knowledge and tools to fight for change locally. The content for this Community Awareness course is adapted from a Teach-Out launched in July of 2020 from experts from across the United States involved in activism, social work, law, government, and higher education....

I thought this was a great class. I really enjoyed hearing all the perspectives from the community leaders in Ann Arbor and those who put together so many great programs there. I just wish that more similar programs were available in my area or that I had the means to put some of them to work.

I took this course hoping to be enlightened with data and facts and to get an alternative side of the issues such that as a white person I could hopefully assist in some way. But there is nothing here. It is mere pandering to a victims mentality and the spewing of radical leftist dogma. Shame on the University of Michigan.
