Readings for third session

The topic of the next session is "How Race and Class Intersect with the Prison Industrial Complex."

Everyone who attended this past Saturday's session should have gotten a copy of the comic called "Prisoners of the War on Drugs."

The introduction to Michelle Alexander's new book called the "New Jim Crow." Please make sure that you are able to read this chapter as it will provide a good foundation for our next session.

This is a powerful article about the death penalty that I think will be of interest to everyone and relates directly to what we will be discussing.

This is a fact sheet called "How is the Criminal Justice System Racist." It comes from a toolkit called "Defending Justice."
