POVERTY, CRIMINAL

JUSTICE & RACE

A TIME TO TALK | 2018

a dialogue about poverty, criminal justice and race

Chrysalis Center  •  November 17, 2018

Criminal justice reform advocates are sparking a larger conversation regarding the role race and poverty play in experience with the justice system. This dialogue took place in Hartford, CT with a panel, featuring Peter Edelman, author of Not a Crime to Be Poor. Guests at the Hartford event watched the Equal Justice Initiative video “From Slavery to Mass Incarceration” and were engaged in a conversation that lifted awareness of implicit bias and how it impacts decision making for the poor and people of color.  All attendees were asked to commit to help bring about change.  The Collaborative hopes to inspire ongoing similar conversations.
