SCCCCOR Benefit: “The House I Live In” Film Screening on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 21st, 2013, 7PM
Join us in honoring the Martin Luther King Jr Holiday with an event challenging the War on Drugs and the associated explosion of the prison population, dubbed by some “The New Jim Crow” for disproportionately targeting people of color. We’ll watch an award-winning new documentary about the drug war, with a post-film discussion led by UCSC professor Craig Reinarman, coauthor of “Crack in America: Demon Drugs and Social Justice”.
This event will also serve as a benefit for the Santa Cruz County Community Coalition to Overcome Racism (SCCCCOR). Tickets are available on a sliding scale $5-15; reserve your spot here: https://www.wepay.com/events/the-house-i-live-in-sccccor-benefit
This event is sponsored by the Santa Cruz Chapter of the ACLU.
