We shared a special presentation of Connect: NY Poverty and the Cycle of Injustice. You will hear the story of Jamier Green, a young man from Albany who kept getting picked up by the cops as he walked to Stewart’s on his lunch break. His boss Howard Gross then became his advocate. Then we’ll hear from a number of experts on poverty and criminal Justice:
Charles Khan, the organizing director for the Strong Economy For All Coalition
Fabina Colon, the Executive Director of the Multi-cultural Resource Center in Ithaca, NY
Jonathan Gradess, Executive Director of the New York State Defenders Association
Ron Deutsch, Executive Director of the Fiscal Policy Institute
Phoebe Brown, Outreach Coordinator of Ultimate Re-entry Opportunity, at the Multi-cultural Resource Center in Ithaca, NYs.
