On Saturday, January 30th, the Coronado Democratic Club hosted Geneviéve Jones-Wright, the Executive Director of Community Advocates for Just and Moral Governance aka MoGo (www.moralgovernance.org). Ms. Jones-Wright has degrees from the University of San Francisco (BA), Howard University (JD), and California Western School of Law (LLM). Her presentation focused on the need for increased oversight and better budget transparency in police departments, regardless of community size. She also explained how the term “defund the police” is often misinterpreted as calling for an end to local enforcement; when in fact, it represents a desire to reimagine and reinvent community policing, while also reallocating funding for law enforcement to reduce the need for an armed, uniformed officer to respond to every 9-1-1 call.

Ms. Jones-Wright’s entire presentation will be put on the Coronado Democratic Club’s website under Links to the archives (www.coronadodemocrats.com).
