The Task Force to End the New Jim Crow
The Woodstock Jewish Congregation Task Force to End the New Jim Crow has the mission of alerting the Jewish community, within our synagogue and beyond, to the reality of mass incarceration as a new form of racial control in our country, as described and documented in Michelle Alexander’s remarkable book, The New Jim Crow.
Our hope is to join and strengthen the public discussion about police stop-and-frisk policies, about the War on Drugs and its discriminatory impact, about how racism functions in a “post-racial” America–and to help change policies within the criminal justice system through dialogue, outreach to people working within that system, and public mobilization.
