In the last update I mentioned the excellent work being done by both Hackney Archives and the new youth-led police monitoring group Hackney Account.
So I was quite excited to find that they are working together on an event this week:
Stop & Research: Police and the Community in Hackney
Wed, 11 November 2020 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
Join ACCOUNT and Hackney Archives to explore the past, present and future of policing in Hackney through creative responses, discussion and material from the archives about community campaigns.
Free online event but pre-booking needed.
The event will include a showing of Hackney Accounts first mini-documentary “Community Healing” and the launch of its Youtube channel Account TV.
