Book Club- We Keep Us Safe (author Zach Norris)
WSCO, in partnership with Root & Restore, will host this book club. You will be contacted with more information once your registration is filled out.
To build community power and a shared vision of what real community safety is, Root & Restore St Paul is hosting a book club this summer to read and discuss Zach Norris's We Keep Us Safe. Norris presents a compelling argument for why our current system of policing and punishment doesn't work and why we need to transition to a care-based model for building safer, healthier communities.
Let's get this party started and pin down a date for us to meet online to talk about the book!
