Social Justice Focus: Mass Incarceration
We are part of a national UUA movement to end the injustices of Mass Incarceration. To educate ourselves, we are reading an important book on the topic: “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness” by Michelle Alexander. We will hold a community-wide book discussion on Aug. 17 at 7 p.m.
In September, we will watch at two-part documentary entitled “The Color of Fear.”
UUCGC recently hosted a community event -- coordinated nationally -- to view a documentary entitled "13th," a reference to the 13th amendment of the US Constitution that outlawed slavery. The film explores the "intersection of race, justice and mass incarceration in the United States." Today, the US has 5% of the world's population but 25% of the people in the world who are incarcerated.
