754 Schermerhorn Ext.

TOPIC:  "Punishing Our Pro Jections: Why Black Folks Have More in Common with The Tea Party Than We Think."

Deborah Peterson Small is the Executive Director of Break the Chains, a public policy research and  advocacy organization committed to addressing the disproportionate impact of punitive drug policies on poor communities of color. Break the Chains was founded in the belief that community activism and advocacy is an essential component of progressive policy reform. Break the Chains works to engage families and community leaders in promoting alternatives to the failed “war on drugs” by adopting public health approaches to substance abuse and drug-related crime. Break the Chains is an advocate and voice for those affected most by drug policies but too often unheard in policy debates and decisions.
