Creative Collective presents Critical Commotion Sept. 13, 19 & 21

Creative Collective for Change is asking the Dawson community to make a Critical Commotion around ideas of law enforcement. With the help of the Dawson alumni group, Peace Week, the DSU and Humanities and Public Life Conference, they will be doing a series of events that spark conversation by asking: What is your experience with law enforcement? What do we want to see change? How can we understand the system better through our experiences with border crossings, metro police and security? How can we fight the injustices we know and hear about?
