Author Zachary Norris: “We Keep Us Safe: Building Secure, Just and Inclusive Communities”
March 4, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Norris, executive director for the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, discusses his book in which he presents a vision for how the United States can achieve safety and security for everyone, especially the most vulnerable members of society. Using data and personal stories from interviews to support his claims, Norris provides a persuasive argument and strategies for moving from a fear-based model to a “culture of care.”
Norris is a graduate of Harvard University and the New York University School of Law. He is the co-founder of Restore Oakland, a community advocacy and training center and is also a co-founder of Justice for Families, a national alliance of family-driven organizations working to end the nation’s youth incarceration epidemic.
