Saturday. Jan. 20, 2018 Social Justice Conference on "Mass Incarceration as a New Jim Crow.” 9am to 1pm at All Souls Church Parish Hall.
Registration requested to help us plan - online at http://bit.ly/2B3s14v or through All Souls’ Facebook Page
We will have a panel of five people who have agreed to present views and discuss issues we face regarding mass incarceration as, in the words of Michelle Alexander, a racial caste system that requires a great social movement to effectively deal with it.
Her argument is that today’s criminal justice system functions as a framework of social oppression and political suppression, comparable to those of Jim Crow and Slavery, and requires serious consideration.
We have two panelists, Elizabeth Herbin-Triant of UMass Lowell, and Jon Huibregtse of Framingham State University, to talk about what our society faced under Jim Crow and relate that to what we face today. We have three speakers, Franklin Baxley, Director of the Criminal Justice Policy Coalition, Rahsaan Hall, Director of the ACLU Racial Justice Program, and Susan Tordella, from End Mass Incarceration Today, to talk about the issues we face and initiatives under way to build democracy and oppose racial injustice.
All church activities such as Yoga, Drumming, Buddhist Reflections, Singing Meditation, Women's Sharing Circle, Gay Men's Discussion Group, and Writing Group are open to the public ... Events are free unless otherwise noted.
We also host self-help groups such as AA and GA. All Souls does not run these groups, we provide the space. Please consult our CALENDAR for days and times.
