Anand Subramanian- The Equity Manifesto

Jul 19, 2016, 04:31 PM

After our community episode surrounding Black Lives Matter, it felt right to drop an episode with one of the brilliant activists in our own community. Enter Anand Subramanian, Associate Director at PolicyLink in Oakland, leading their efforts to advance community-centered policing. Our conversation begins with a reading from their Equity Manifesto and continues to explore the difference between equity and equality. We then get to explore how he got started, examples of how history has created advantages for different communities that makes equity necessary over equality, and how being South Asian plays into this whole narrative. In a time of such racial unrest centered around policing, this conversation could not be more necessary. Consider this a jump off point and come join.
