Broken windows and beyond: art and activism

October 19, 7:00 pm


Broken windows policing was a flawed theory from the late 20th century that cleaning up visible signs of disorder in communities (i.e. broken windows) would prevent more serious crimes from occurring. It didn’t work well. Faith Kohler’s experience as a former federal agent and documentary film director gave her a first-hand look at how this doesn’t work.

Faith will share her current work, SALVAGED, an exhibit built from salvaged windows and scrap lumber. This exhibit of “broken” windows questions perceptions about community policing and explores the role and scope of law enforcement in the context of community needs.

It’s also a follow up to our August program on Police Accountability.

Faith is a speaker at Building Bridges to Reform at the NŌ STUDIOS SOCIAL JUSTICE SUMMIT 2020 October 16-18. SJS 2020 will be available online at nostudios.com/sjs-2020-live.
