The Color Line in the 21st Century (Community Service Society)
May 5, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm
Any solutions to the endemic problems facing our city must address the formerly incarcerated, who are arguably the most marginalized among us. CSS sees the effects of mass incarceration on a daily basis — particularly in its work to remove barriers to employment for individuals with criminal conviction histories, most all of them black and brown.
This panel discussion will highlight intersections between the historic operation of institutional racism and the role of the criminal punishment system in subordinating poor black and brown people to second-class citizenship. It aims to inform and frame policies that address the root of problems facing our communities, promote community-based advocacy, and advance political engagement as the nation enters another election cycle.
