Social Justice @ Plymouth
Sunday, March 24 | 12:30 pm, The Reception Room
New York State's parole system is broken. Almost half of the people on parole in New York wind up back in prison, with most re-incarcerations due to technical violations that are not crimes.

The New York State Legislature is taking up a comprehensive package of criminal justice and parole reform bills, addressing some of the challenges that make our prison system a needless revolving door.

Learn about our current system, the proposed reforms, and what you can do to help people get back on their feet and stay out of prisons.

PANELISTS:
  • Eric Gonzalez, Brooklyn District Attorney
  • Vincent Schiraldi, Senior Research Scientist at Justice Lab of Columbia University
  • Rob De Leon, Associate Vice President of Programs at The Fortune Society
  • Donna Hylton, Director of the Women and Girls Project at the Katal Center for Health, Equity and Justice.

Moderated by Celeste Katz, Co-Host of WBAI-FM New York's "Driving Forces".
Penitential Pancakes
Plymouth Pancakes a success!
Thank you to the wonderful group of Plymouth people who made last Sunday's pancake lunch and races so fun! Check out Alex Yaggy's photos of the festivities.
My paper plate was not designed to hold syrup, but I covered it with fluffy golden layers drenched in melted butter and soaked in a sweet amber river of maple deliciousness. Whoever decided overeating should be the prelude to penitence was a genius... Read on for Brett's take on all things pancake...
