Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow, will be speaking at the Quaker retreat center Pendle Hill in Wallingford, Pa., on Thursday morning. Our own Rev. Paula Maiorano will be there as part of a four-day workshop for organizers of the movement to dismantle this egregious form of racial and caste control. Seats in the workshop were sold out weeks ago, but a live streaming feed from Pendle Hill on Thursday morning has been arranged. And it’s free!
Join me and other members of this rising movement to hear Michelle Alexander. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment on this post. Anyone who has heard Michelle Alexander discuss mass incarceration, the drug war, and the New Jim Crow knows what a powerful experience this will be.
