You are invited to “Slavery by Another Name, part 2,” a panel-led discussion based on the topics brought up in Douglas A. Blackmon’s book. In this discussion, we will focus on mass incarceration, housing, and re-entry.
Our discussion coincides with HUD’s recently released guidance which warns that blanket policies discriminating against people with a criminal record may violate the Fair Housing Act. Do you think HUD’s guidance is necessary? How can we help people find safe and affordable housing after being released from prison? What can be done to curb recidivism and lower incarceration rates? These are the kinds of questions that will be addressed in our discussion.
This event is free and open to all. Free parking is available at the United Way Building. Please RSVP ahead of time, so food can be ordered accordingly. Contact Chloe Gersten (firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-977-2623) for more information.
