Finding a Path Forward: Justice for all? Racial Disparity in our Justice System
As a nation, we pledge allegiance to this republic…with “Justice for All.” But do we honor that pledge when it comes to race? This class will explore that question. We’ll examine current policing in Louisville and the appointment of a new police chief. We will look, too, at the shamefully high rates of incarceration for Black people and why they occur--as well as prevention and reentry programs. The course will also include time for deep reflection and discussion. As always, our classes will be led by Black leaders with direct knowledge of the issues, and as always, we’ll work to understand what we can do to support a fairer, more equitable city.
Tuesdays (October 3 - November 14) from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
The class will be offered as a hybrid; you can join in person at the Barn or over Zoom.
Price: The regular price of this course is $140, but we are offering it at no charge, in the spirit of the gift and with support from Metro Government's Office of Equity. Please click here if you’d like to make a donation to support the general work of the Earth & Spirit Center.
