RSVP TODAY to be sent the zoom link to this event!

In November 2020, San Diego voters passed Measure B with one of the largest margins on record in San Diegan elections. Developed in collaboration with community groups and activists demanding accountability and transparency in all institutions of public safety, Measure B dissolved the former Community Review Board on Police Practices (CRB), which was created to provide community review of the San Diego Police Department after a series of high-profile police killings of Black community members in the 1980s. In its place, Measure B instituted a new, fully independent, and far more powerful Commission on Police Practices (CPP) to empower community members to enact more intensive oversight of policing in San Diego.

For this roundtable, Professor Patrick Anderson (who was a CRB member since 2018, and is now an interim commissioner on the CPP) will facilitate a discussion with two longtime local community organizers who were centrally involved in the Measure B campaign: Andrea St. Julian (who wrote Measure B, and is co-founder of San Diegans for Justice) and Ariana Federico (who facilitated the Youth Council of Mid-City CAN before being named as a Lead Organizer after the passage of Measure B).
