On January 20th, communities across Denver will be uniting to have an open discussion about mass incarceration, its effects, and ways to organize against it. The event is entitled “Unmasking Mass Incarceration: A Community Event,” and will follow the MLK Day Marade, from 3-5pm at The Baerresen Ballroom in the Tivoli on Auraria Campus.
The system of mass incarceration unjustly targets and criminalizes low-income persons and people of color, extracting a toll on our families and community. After the Marade, come explore through shared experiences about the negative impact of mass incarceration on criminal justice , immigrants’ rights, workers’ rights, LGBT justice, police accountability, and other issues. Enjoy an astounding presentation by the Romero Theater Troupe who will be putting on reenactments of Colorado community’s battles for human rights. Then use what you know to learn how to organize and continue the fight for human rights with a community dedicated to a just future.
Please join us as we plant the seed for mass movement in Colorado. All are all working at the intersections of our issues to dismantle the system of mass incarceration that is breaking our communities.
