Public forum: The Whole System Is Guilty

PROP in association with the Coalition to End Broken Windows and the Brite Leadership Coalition is hosting a public forum on March 12 about the collective actions of all major criminal justice system agencies and how they impact the lives of thousands of New Yorkers.

Where: JHS 166 (Gershwin), at 800 Van Siclen Ave., Brooklyn – Nearest subway stops are New Lots Ave. on the L, 2, 3, 4 and 5 lines.
When: Thursday March 12 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM

A public forum open to all, The Whole System is Guilty brings together a range of panelists for a
critique of the major agencies of the criminal justice system — police, judges, prosecutors, the defense bar, jails/prisons, and the City Council — that each day join forces to administer harm and hardship on hundreds, if not thousands, of low-income New Yorkers of color. The speakers will
present information and analysis and join with the audience in discussing and planning the next steps needed to further expose and correct the problems described.

Panelists include:
• Babe Howell, Associate Professor at CUNY School of Law
• Josmar Trujillo, activist and writer at the Coalition to End ‘Broken Windows’
• Nick Malinowski, advocacy specialist at Brooklyn Defender Services
• Steven Zeidman, Law Professor at CUNY School of Law, Director of Criminal Defense Clinic

Moderator: Dennis Flores, El Grito de Sunset Park.

Together they will cover topics such as police, judges, prosecutors, the defence bar, jails and the city council.
