SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION
The children’s defense fund coined the phrase the “cradle to prison pipeline”. Author Michele Alexander referred to it as “the new Jim Crow”. Whatever you call it, CFSCHRL founder and civil rights lawyer Van White, observed that men of color often give up or say “f@#k it” when confronted with the realities of racial profiling and disparate sentencing. Listen and learn from a panel of experts (Bruce Alexander, commissioner of schools Akron, Ohio; Christi Griffin, esq. Of the ethics project; Sheila a. Bedi, associate clinical professor, NW University school of law.) On proven strategies for dismantling the cradle to prison pipeline and how we can best bring hope to the young men and women of color who are caught up in the strong current within the pipeline.
