"The New Jim Crow" Discussion Series

"The New Jim Crow" Discussion Series

Series on Mass Incarceration of African Americans (The New Jim Crow): Causes, Impact, and Reform Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m., April 25th, May 2nd, May 9th, and May 16th

Seeing race is not the problem. Refusing to care for the people we see is the problem. We should hope not for a colorblind society, but instead for a world in which we can see each other fully, learn from each other, and do what we can to respond to each other with love. --Michelle Alexander

In this series, we will use content from Michelle Alexander’s book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness as a jumping off point for our study of mass incarceration in the United States and exploration of Washington State’s criminal justice system. We heartily recommend that you read the book, but it is not required for participation; rather in-class videos will serve as the basis for small group discussion. On April 25th and May 2nd, we will discuss Alexander’s thesis, her research on racially biased policies, laws, and practices, and her call for a large scale, reform movement to end mass incarceration. Next, we’ll consider the criminal justice system in Washington, including its flaws and reform efforts. On May 9th, Detective Kim Bogucki and several ex-offenders will present the IF Project, a collaboration of law enforcement, currently and previously incarcerated adults, and community partners focused on intervention, prevention, and reduction of incarceration and recidivism. And on May 16th, Chaplain Terri Stewart from the Youth Chaplaincy Coalition will share her program’s model which involves lay people from diverse Christian backgrounds walking with young people in the Youth Detention Center and Echo Glen and offering support to those coming out of incarceration.

Please join us for this opportunity to learn about the issue of mass incarceration and ways in which we as a society, church, and individuals might take action. The cost of the discussion series is $10 and includes a pizza dinner. Sign-up at the Get Involved Table or call the church office. If you have questions, please contact Ev Eldridge at eje10@comcast.net or 206-799-3015.
