Kathy has asked authors Maya Schenwar and Rory Fanning to come and offer a short presentation of their recently published books regarding how to liberate ourselves and society from imprisonment and war.
Worth Fighting For
Pat Tillman's death by friendly fire was covered up just days before his comrade Rory Fanning -- who served in the same unit as Tillman -- left the Army Rangers as a conscientious objector. Disquieted by his tours in Afghanistan, Fanning sets out to honor Tillman's legacy by crossing the United States on foot.
Told with page-turning style, humor, and warmth, Worth Fighting For explores the emotional and social consequences of rejecting the mission of one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. It is only through the generous, and colorful people Fanning meets and the history he discovers that he learns to live again.
Locked Down, Locked Out: Why Prison Doesn't Work and How We Can Do Better,by Maya Schenwar, looks at how prison tears families and communities apart, creating a rippling effect that touches every corner of our society. Through the stories of prisoners and their families, as well as her own family's experience of her sister's incarceration, Schenwar shows how the institution that locks up 2.3 million Americans -- and decimates poor communities of color -- is shredding the ties that, if nurtured, could foster real collective safety.
The destruction does not end upon exiting the prison walls: the 95 percent of prisoners who are released emerge with even fewer economic opportunities and fewer human connections on the outside than before. Locked Down, Locked Outshows how incarceration takes away the very things that might enable people to build better lives.
Looking toward a future beyond imprisonment, Schenwar profiles community-based initiatives that foster antiracist, anticlassist, prohumanity approaches to justice. These programs successfully deal with problems -- both individual harm and larger social wrongs -- through connection rather than isolation, moving toward a safer, freer future for all of us.
"This book has the power to transform hearts and minds, opening us to new ways of imagining what justice can mean for individuals, families, communities and our nation as a whole."
