NOW is the time for those of us who are white to take a stand.

Did you know that a $210 million youth jail is being built in Seattle?  Youth crime has decreased by 50% but racial disproportionality has increased: young Black men are now 4.5 times more likely to be jailed in Seattle.

 That is NOT what justice looks like.

NOT IN OUR NAME. 

Featuring:

 A community art project on the criminal justice system.

The voices of leaders from Youth Undoing Institutional Racism.

An interactive presentation on the impact of the Prison Industrial Complex by Gary Perry and Rose Ernst, Seattle University professors.

  *Free Dinner & Childcare*
