Not In Our Town Princeton

Continuing Conversation: White Supremacy, March 4, 2019, 7 pm

As many of you know, NOT IN OUR TOWN PRINCETON is a multi-racial, multi-faith group of individuals who stand together for racial justice and inclusive communities. Our focus is to promote the equitable treatment of all, and to uncover and confront white supremacy — a system which manipulates and pits all races and ethnicities against each other.

Our goal is to identify and expose the political, economic, and cultural systems which have enabled white supremacy to flourish, and to create new structures and policies which will ensure equity and inclusion for all. In our commitment to uncovering the blight of white supremacy on our humanity, we take responsibility to address it and eliminate it in all its forms through intentional action, starting with ourselves and our communities.

Below is a list of our four most recent programs; watch this space for what to look forward to!

Ryan Haygood ““Movement for the 94%,” March 25, 2019

Optimized-970043_10152267474879266_1592225510_n+(1) Ryan Haygood, the president and CEO of the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice, will discuss the “Movement for the 94%” at the next meeting of Indivisible Princeton on Monday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m. at UUCP Princeton, 50 Cherry Hill Road, Princeton.

The movement is intended to hold Gov. Phil Murphy accountable to the 94 percent of African Americans who voted for him in the last election, as well as the New Jersey state legislature. The movement is centered around criminal justice and other issues. These include: transforming the New Jersey youth justice system in which a black child is 30 times more likely to be incarcerated than a white child; restoring the right to vote to people with criminal convictions, and closing the racial wage gap.
