The House I Live In

May’s screening and discussHouse marqueeion of the failure of the War on Drugs was motivational. The compelling stories of systemic breakdowns told by The House I Live In were echoed by our panelists, Dr. Melanie Hildebrant, Sociology Professor from IUP, Patti Holmes of the NAACP of Indiana County, and Mike Krafic of the Armstrong Indiana Clarion Drug and Alcohol Task Force.

Recommended reading out of our panel is the The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander.

Take action on this issue by supporting the Smarter Sentencing Act, and by getting involved with local groups like the NAACP, Descarcerate PA, and the Northside Coalition for Fair Housing.
