Violence Is a Health Issue!

Hear Kathy Boyer, Trauma Unit, Christiana Hospital 

at Meeting of the Coalition to Dismantle the New Jim Crow

Monday, April 13, at 6:00 pm   First U Wilmington Sanctuary

Please plan to attend this coming Monday at the First Unitarian Church of Wilmington when we will hear about victims of violence in New Castle County and learn how patients and families are cared for by the Trauma Unit of Christiana Hospital.  Kathy Boyer, MSN, RN, CCRN is the Injury Prevention Coordinator of the Trauma Department Christiana Care.  Please come for this serious presentation and following discussion.  The Coalition will meet at 6:00 pm in the Sanctuary. 

The New Jim Crow is the latest structural form of racism in the U. S. The term was coined by civil rights attorney and author Michelle Alexander in her 2010 book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.  Meetings of the Coalition to Dismantle the New Jim Crow are held on the first Monday of the month and alternate between Mother African Union Church and First U.  Our goal is to bring about change.  Join us!  We need your in-put as we plan our future activities.  Please contact Rev. Maiorano at paulamaiorano32@gmail.com or Joan Priest at joan@jpduua.org to learn more.
