'The New Jim Crow' by Michelle Alexander was published 10 years ago, yet not much has changed with the justice system.
In her book, The New Jim Crow, Michelle helps readers understand how the criminal justice system has become a new method of enforcing and maintaining an inequitable racial hierarchy.
As a business leader, discover the impact mass incarceration in the age of colorblindness impacts you and your organization's ability to be successful.
Join us on May 27th and our special guest, Marcus Jackson, Paralegal at the Louisville Urban League, to discuss the first half of the book and what you can do from an individual perspective to facilitate change!
 
Join us on June 3rd and our special guests, Beth Davisson, Executive Director of the Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center, and Ashley McCarty, Business Liaison for Kentucky's Strategic Initiative for Transformational Employment (KYSITE) to discuss the second half of the book and what you can do from an organizational perspective to facilitate change!
