Dismantling Racism Team Meeting (ALTERNATE LOCATION)
December 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Dismantling Racism Team (DRT) grew out of CBE’s 2016 Race in America book discussions and has been working on criminal legal reform. Two years ago, we participated in the Raise the Age coalition that got New York State to sharply curtail prosecution of teenagers as adults. Last year, we helped pass laws eliminating cash bail for most offenses and requiring prosecutors to disclose their evidence earlier in their cases. In 2019 – 20, we will push to shut down the school-to-prison pipeline by educating people about and advocating for a bill to reform school disciplinary systems that discriminate against students of color. Please join us at one of our upcoming meetings at CBE every other Monday at 7 PM.
