Springfield Central Library, 220 State Street, Springfield – Community Room
Rachel Telushkin has worked in fiscal operations for the nonprofit, private and academic sectors in Franklin, Hampshire and Hamden counties, with a focus on community economic development, including revolving loan funds, community land trusts and grant management. Her life interests are justice, historical truth telling, urban ecosystems, creating healthy educational experiences, and abolition. Flint still doesn’t have clean water.
Join together for a discussion of the legacy of the Abolition Movement in the U.S.A. and how we continue that legacy today. We will focus on the question: how does restorative justice give us alternatives to mass incarceration and offer pathways to community safety and healing?
