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.

Presenters:

Wilma Solomon, Not in Our Town Board member and member of the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow Greater Trenton Chapter

Krystal Seruya, Youth Trainer with the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice’s 150 Years is Enough Campaign that seeks to transform the youth justice system into a community-based system of care.

Join us to deepen your understanding of this ongoing injustice and to voice your concerns in our small group discussions.  You are welcome to bring a friend.
