Striving for Justice, a look at Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow
November 4, 11, 18, and 25
Through the lens of our Episcopal identity, as named in the Baptismal Covenant and as it applies to Greater Seattle, we will explore Michelle Alexander’s insightful book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. Canon Malcolm McLaurin and Dr. Alec Campbell, PhD, will facilitate this series, where we’ll welcome local speakers, explore scripture, engage in conversation, and share stories, creating our religious voice—a voice that will help us form a personal and institutional call to action. Resources from this talk are available here.
