Organizers from POOR Magazine lead a discussion on POOR press’ book How to Not Call the Po'Lice Ever. 

Based off POOR Magazine’s revolutionary workshops of the same name and collected in print for the first time, this handbook takes readers through the Herstory/His-STORY of Po’Lice Terror of our bodies, lives, children and elders in this stolen land, and then shares the model of the Elephant Council at Homefulness—a poor, Indigenous people/traumatized people’s accountability circle, which includes a redefinition of the silently violent, western white supremacist notion of “security,” and enables us to hold each other through trauma and institute a true definition of interdependent safety.

POOR press is the poor people-led publishing arm of the grassroots, homeless and poor people-led movement known as POOR Magazine which has been dedicated to publishing and producing the books, art, education and culture of very low, no-income, homeless, indigenous, disabled and incarcerated youth, adults and elders since 1996.
