The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
Saturday, March 10, 10am – Noon
Facilitator: Rev. Linda Lawrence
Michelle Alexander’s important book examines the “war on drugs”, racism, and the disproportionate results of mass incarceration of poor and especially Black people. A former UU Common Read, this book has been chosen to further our understanding of this year’s reemphasis of the Unitarian Universalist initiative to identify and understand white privilege and work to end racism. Books will soon be on sale at the church.

Lorraine Groberg and David Weigel will share some of the basics of this very important way of communicating that is especially helpful when dealing with disagreement or conflict.
