Progressive Issues Forum: Dismantling the New Jim Crow

Durham People’s Alliance will co-sponsor a Progressive Issues Forum in partnership with Durham for All, Southern Coalition for Social Justice, Southerners on New Ground, and the Black Law Student Association chapter at North Carolina Central Law School:
 

Dismantling the New Jim Crow: How We Can Transform our Criminal Justice System in Durham--A Vision for the First 100 Days

Durham voted for a change in our criminal justice system when we elected a new District Attorney and a new Sheriff. Now we have the opportunity in the upcoming election to elect new District and Superior Court judges who are committed to transformation of our criminal justice system. We want to make sure our new leaders are going to promote justice over incarceration throughout their time in office.

Hear from Satana DeBerry, Durham County District Attorney-elect; Clarence Birkhead, Durham County Sheriff-elect; and State Representative Marcia Morey, former Chief Judge of Durham County District Court, and justice-involved folks as we discuss how we can hold our elected officials accountable in their first 100 days in office to:

  • Reduce the number of people in Durham County Jail.
  • Reduce fees and cost in the court system.
  • Eliminate the cash bail system.

Come at 6:00 pm for refreshments. Childcare and interpretation services will be provided.
