Our Institution: Student Voices on Cops Off Campus Movements

Ahmari Anthony, Reimagined Futures for Howard University News Service


Since the summer of 2020, the national Defund the Police and abolition movements have gained the attention of media, government, law enforcement, and citizens alike. While the general movement focuses on local police departments, hundreds of young adults have started Cops Off Campus campaigns (and a national coalition) to bring these philosophies to their colleges and universities. In this podcast for Reimagined Futures, Ahmari Anthony reports on the challenges that they’ve faced, the progress that they’ve made, and the vision that they have for the future.
