"An Evening of Civic Discourse with Author Zach Norris" is being held in partnership with the Decatur Book Festival. The free event, which takes place at Bold Monk Brewing Co. on Thursday, March 5 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., will focus on Norris' new book, We Keep Us Safe: Building Secure, Just, and Inclusive Communities. This important discussion will focus on fostering and building a more democratic society.
The event, which will be hosted in Bold Monk’s dramatic Abbey Space, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served, and books can be purchased following the discussion. To reserve your spot please visit https://boldmonkbrewing.app.rsvpify.com.
The book by community leader and lawyer Zach Norris is hailed as a groundbreaking new vision for public safety that overturns more than 200 years of fear-based discrimination, othering, and punishment.
Norris is the executive director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which creates campaigns related to civic engagement, violence prevention, juvenile justice, and police brutality, with a goal of shifting economic resources away from prisons and punishment and towards economic opportunity. He is also the co-founder of Restore Oakland and Justice for Families, both of which focus on the power of community action.
Bold Monk Brewing Co. is located at COMPLEX West Midtown, 1737 Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard, in Building D. For more information on Bold Monk Brewing Co. visit www.boldmonkbrewingco.com.
