Hope to see you all at our Coalition to Dismantle New Jim Crow meeting, tonight, August 3, First Unitarian Church of Wilmington, 730 Halstead Road at 6:00 PM in the Sanctuary.

We’ll be viewing and discussing a 68-minute documentary by Matthew Pillischer.

“Broken On All Sides: Race, Mass Incarceration & New Visions for Criminal Justice in the U.S.” explores the intersection of race, poverty, and the criminal justice and penal systems, centering on Michelle Alexander’s groundbreaking theory in the book, The New Jim Crow.
