21st Century America: The Re-Emergence of Hate Crimes
Concord Prison Outreach invites you to our Spring Community Discussion series entitled “21st Century America: The Re-Emergence of Hate Crimes.”
This five-week series will examine the intersections between social science data, cultural attitudes and beliefs, regionalism, policymaking, and health focus interventions. Using a trauma-informed format, we intend to apply Restorative Justice principles and practices, breath work, storytelling, and active listening skills to explore, understand, and develop practical solutions to identify hate motivated crimes in our community.
Location: Trinitarian Congregational Church, 54 Walden Street, Concord, MA and via Zoom livestream
Main Speaker: Sam Williams, Executive Director, Concord Prison Outreach
Guest Speaker: Jack McDevitt, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Northeastern University
