Community to Community, Whatcom County ReEntry Coalition and The Latino Equity Initiative, will be hosting a community dialogue with SpearIt. SpearIt will speak on the legal punishment in post-Civil Rights America through the lens of ritual. By examining punishment practices from the perspective of culture, the United States has the largest incarceration operation in the world and among the top five countries which kill its citizens.
SpearIt comes with extensive teaching experience, having served as a teaching fellow at Harvard University, teaching assistant at University of California, Santa Barbara, and graduate student instructor at University of California, Berkeley. Most recently, SpearIt taught inmates for two semesters for the Prison University Project at San Quentin State Prison.
Following SpearIt’s presentation, we will hear from a panel of former felons on their experience in the criminal justice system.
The event will be held at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, 1207 Ellsworth Street, Bellingham, WA. 4:00-5:30 pm. Donations gladly accepted; to benefit Community to Community, Whatcom County ReEntry Coalition, The Latino Equity Initiative.
