Listen to "The Intersect: How to Defund the Police" on Spreaker. On a new episode of the Unpacking the News podcast Black Lives Matter Montreal organizer Marlihan Lopez, Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal coordinator Jessica Quijano and Stella executive director Sandra Wesley join host Andre Goulet to discuss what defunding and demilitarizing the police would look like, how this process can lead to decolonization and decriminalization, and why re-directing funding and reinvesting in communities are crucial steps to reduce over-policing and police violence in our cities.

This conversation was recorded on July 13th, 2020.
