Letter(s) from Birmingham Jail


December 1, 2020 6:30 pm December 1, 2020 9:00 pm America/New_York Letter(s) from Birmingham Jail

You are cordially invited to Letter(s) From Birmingham Jail a panel discussion and conversation on mass incarceration at Elm City Vineyard Church (425 College Street, New Haven). Come & join us for one of the most important conversations of 2020! We are hosting this event in light of Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous 1963 letter to religious leaders, urging them to remember their duty to fight for justice. King continued to resist the dysfunctional structures of racism, while being imprisoned by the system that created prejudice. How do we fight for freedom and justice with a system that promotes mass incarceration? How can we influence the future as people concerned with the welfare of our brothers and sisters impacted by this country’s criminal justice system? These are just a few questions that we will discuss! We have a panel that includes people doing the work of prison education and criminal justice system reformation! We are pleased to have some amazing panel speakers: Zelda Roland founding director of the Yale Prison Education Initiative, Stevenson Lockley a Senior clinician with Living Free, Willis McCraw a Prison Chaplain at Manson Youth Institution, and Asti Jackson a political campaigner with CONECT and co-chair of their Clean Slate Campaign. You do not want to miss this!
