Join us as we welcome Richard Speck, a Smart Justice Organizer with the ACLU. Rick will give a 45 minute presentation on the ACLU's newest campaign, "Smart Justice".
"The ACLU Campaign for Smart Justice is an unprecedented, multiyear effort to reduce the U.S. jail and prison population by 50% and to combat racial disparities in the criminal justice system."
Rick will walk you through how you can help out with all the issues that the ACLU is focusing on: sentencing, bail, and prosecutorial reform, parole and release issues, and re-entry issues.
To learn more about how ACLU is pushing forward on such important topics before you come to the talk, visit their website at:
The talk will be given after a short service by the Birmingham Temple.
