Urban Action 2/18 

This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)

Panel on stopping mass incarceration

The League of Women Voters will hold a public forum concerning mass incarceration and youth of color at 7 p.m. on Monday, February 23. The forum is the result of a LWV discussion that took place last year concerning Michelle Alexander's book, "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness." Panelists Elaine Spaull, director of the Center for Youth; Shani Curry Mitchell, assistant district attorney for Monroe County; and the Rev. Lawrence Hargrave will talk about job training, career readiness, and alternatives to suspension to address the problem. The event will be held at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1050 East Avenue.

Talk on urban transformation

The Rochester Regional Community Design Center will present "Re-greening the Living City," a talk by architect and urban designer Lee Quill at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 25. Lee will discuss how his firm's "Strategic Investment Area Plan" for the City of Charlottesville, Virginia, helped transform a forgotten former industrial area and low-income public housing into a vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood. Quill will give his presentation at Gleason Works, 1000 University Avenue. Tickets: $15; free to students with valid identification; and $10 for seniors ages 65 and over. Information: 271-0520.
