Join us in our Denver office for a discussion of the groundbreaking book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander.
The New Jim Crow book discussion
Wednesday, July 25 at 5:30 p.m.
ACLU of Colorado Office
303 E. 17th Ave., Denver
Rev. Roger Butts and John Riley will lead the discussion of the racial and social issues raised in the book. For example, there are more African-American men under correctional control today – in prison or jail, on probation or parole – than were enslaved in the year 1850.
John Riley is the Coalition Coordinator at the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition and a retired Juvenile Correctional Administrator with the Colorado Division of Youth Corrections.
Roger Butts is an Organizer with Coloradans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty and an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister.
This event is free and open to the public, but we ask that you RSVP.
Snacks and beverages will be served.
