Social Work hosts "The New Jim Crow" discussion
The Department of Social Work at the NYC campus premiered the Catalyst for Compassion Book Club with a discussion on Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.
The Rev. Ruben Austria, Director of Community Connections for Youth, participated in the inaugural event. CCFY is a New-York based nonprofit organization whose mission is to mobilize indigenous faith and neighborhood organizations to develop effective community-based alternative-to-incarceration programs for youth.
The Catalyst for Compassion Book Club is a forum for professionals, educators, and students who seek to be catalysts promoting a just and caring society with compassion by integrating their Christian faith and social work practice. Its purpose is to facilitate critical thinking and discussion of crucial and current issues through reading and discussing relevant books.
