The blog Prison Culture has curated this amazing resource, #FergusonSyllabus, a post that brings together all the best teaching materials about the shooting of Mike Brown and the injustices that are faced by peaceful protesters in Ferguson. The post also includes resources to facilitate popular education around police violence and the prison industrial complex from Project NIA (No Youth in Prison), Buzzfeed, Chain Reaction and many more. The syllabus includes graphics, comics, zines, introduction activities, videos, worksheets and additional materials to help teach the inherent racism within policing as an institution.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
