Community Forum looking at the age of Mass Incarceration!

Showing Up for Racial Justice Springfield-Eugene invites our community to a forum with speakers from around the state who will deepen our understanding of the problem of mass incarceration and prepare us to take action. We are honored to include panelists who have been directly affected by the racism that pervades our public institutions and are willing to share their personal experiences. Participants will also hear from local leaders and organizations taking action to disrupt mass incarceration so that we can develop our own plans to effect positive change. Co-sponsored by the Eugene Human Rights Commission, this event is free and open to the public. A light dinner will be provided for all registered guests.

Donations accepted to support the on-going anti-racism work of SURJ and our partner organizations. $5-20 suggested donation – all welcome!

David Rogers, ACLU of Oregon

Kate Gonsalves, Oregon Justice Resource Center

Ayisha Elliott
