Vivek Venkatesh to participate in community roundtable on urban security

Co-holder of the Chair and Project Someone Director Vivek Venkatesh will be joining a diverse panel of activists and experts in a roundtable on urban security this Thursday––the final event in a webinar series titled “Territories in Conversation: Urban Security.” The series, led by Benoit Décary-Secours and Leslie Touré Kapo in partnership with local nonprofit Paroles D’excluEsaims to promote critical conversations about popular discourses on issues of urban (in)security. More specifically, it seeks to shed light on how Montreal youth in marginalized neighbourhoods are racialized and scapegoated by the media in discussions on urban safety. Thursday’s roundtable is titled “Trajectoires de lutte : résistances locales et émancipation.”
