On Monday, October 7, 2019, 7 – 8:30 PM at the Princeton Public Library (65 Witherspoon St.), Not in Our Town Princeton’s Continuing Conversation will present the second part of the series–The (In)justice System. We will examine the institution of incarceration in the United States, in particular some of the factors leading to the massive numbers of people presently imprisoned, with a focus on the disproportionate impact on African American men. In addition we will explore the effort in New Jersey to end youth incarceration and to invest in community-based alternatives.
