TRUE BLUE GENERAL MEETING

The criminal justice system in Kansas is broken. We can fix it, making our communities safer and stronger.

Join us to hear inspirational speaker Dr. Micah Kubic teach us how we can make a difference in reforming the criminal justice system. Keeping 9,700 Kansans in prison, many of them non-violent drug offenders or people with mental illnesses, cost taxpayers $236 million in 2014. Dr. Kubic has a Kansas Smart Justice agenda to share with us.

Dr. Kubic, Executive Director of the Kansas American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), is a nationally-recognized community builder, scholar of the African-American experience and inspirational speaker. Read Dr. Kubic's biography

As a follow up to this meeting we will host a one-time book discussion of Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy, focusing on his work in Alabama working to free innocent men on death row.
