Inauguration: Addressing the People's Issues Continued Conversation....

Join the Peace Resource Center as we welcome organizational partners to lead us in education and discussion around the Criminal Injustice System. 

Featuring:

People Over Profits San Diego (POPSD) has been engaged in criminal justice organizing and has focused on the problem of mass incarceration in our society and the damage it continues to inflict on communities of color.  They are also involved in efforts against the privatization of correctional facilities. Their membership and organizational agenda are reflective of the Barrio Logan neighborhood in San Diego where they hold their open weekly Wednesday night meetings.  POPSD will discuss what the current trends are with the criminal justice system in San Diego and what impact these trends are having on people of color. 

Community Assistance Support Team (CAST) plays a critical role in gang intervention work, as well as providing exceptional support to victims of crime. They rely heavily on the participation and the wisdom of local clergy for this work and this makes us grounded in City Heights and South Eastern San Diego.  CAST will discuss their current work that includes violence prevention for youth and young adults, training for law enforcement, mobile response team, and direct support for victims and families of crimes. 

Darwin Fishman, Phd, Community Review Board and Yusef Miller, Community Outreach Representative, CAIR-SD will lead a discussion about opportunities to become involved in criminal justice reform work and what we can specifically do in San Diego.  They will open up the floor to allow for all of us to share stories and ask questions about best practices and effective strategies for criminal justice reform work in San Diego. 

Sponsored by the PRC, AFSC, JOB, SURJ and community partners.
