Slide1Join us at Aldrich Library, 6 Washington St., Barre, VT on Monday, September 14th and Tuesday, September 15th for two workshops where participants will discuss “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness” by Michelle Alexander. The discussion will be facilitated by Beverly Little Thunder and Nathan Suter.

This discussion will focus on the War on Drugs, how it has developed into the booming industry we see today, and how communities of color have been disproportionately and unjustly burdened by this campaign. The workshop will offer participants a chance to express their thoughts and decompress within a semi-structured conversation. Participants are asked to come to both sessions of the discussion.
