Racism and the Criminal System:
March 25, 2021
This #ClassACTForum examines how, with strengthened awareness and a new administration, the challenges of changing policing, prosecution, and public defense rest upon us all. The time has arrived for activism that will energize our society to treat all citizens equally before the law and to reform a prison industrial system that targets our most marginalized communities.
It’s not too late to change the world.
Welcome to ClassACT (Class—Achieving Change Together) HR73, an initiative of members of the Harvard-Radcliffe Class of 1973, who are working together for positive social change. The purposes of ClassACT are to bring together Harvard-Radcliffe Class of 1973 classmates to address important local, national, and international problems by creating and supporting positive change; and, to create expanded, rewarding relationships among classmates.
Bridges are small projects that connect socially responsible organizations to classmate volunteers willing to suport their organizational mission.
Sustained collaborative relationships provide continuing opportunities for substantive classmate involvement across organizations and ClassACT.
Using fellowships, relationship-building, and education, this initiative will advance peace and human rights consistent with the principles of Benazir Bhutto.
