Hamid Khan, organizer of the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition, will be joining us to talk about the work of the coalition, as well as broader conversations about police surveillance, activism for equal justice, and dismantling government systems of surveillance and harm. Learn more about the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition at their website.
Hamid Khan is an organizer and coordinator with the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition. The mission of the coalition is to build community-based power to dismantle police surveillance, spying, and infiltration programs. The coalition utilizes multiple campaigns to advance an innovative organizing model that is Los Angeles-based but has implications regionally, nationally, and internationally. Hamid also serves on the board of May First Technology, a membership organization that engages in building movements by advancing the strategic use and collective control of technology for local struggles, global transformation, and emancipation without borders.

“Civic Change, Power, and Voice: Lessons From the Community” was conceived as a chance for students to learn from activists, scholars, and community organizers on the front lines of enacting change with an emphasis on civic action. We’ll be hearing from a wide range of speakers with diverse backgrounds, allowing a fuller picture of the various faces of civic responsibilities and opportunities students may pursue in community activism. This event was supported by Strategic Initiative Funds from the Campus Life Committee.
