Race Forward Answers, because I’m kind of sick of repeating myself 🙂
Please read The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander to understand the new age of mass incarceration.
And I highly advise checking out the recordings to the Vegan Praxis of Black Lives Matter conference. You actually don’t have to be ‘black’ or ‘vegan’ to benefit because the conference is about how systemic racism operates– even within veganism and/or the food system! And we talk about how Black Lives Matter ‘matters’ to everyone.
