"Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice..." with author Lisa Bloom 7PM, Wed. 10-29-14


Lisa Bloom, author of Suspicion Nation
Wednesday, October 29 at 7 pm

Bestselling author, trial attorney, and NBC News analyst Lisa Bloom discusses her new book, "Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It"

What went wrong behind the scenes in the Trayvon Martin case? Why does America endure so many tragic shootings like this one? These are the questions at the heart of Suspicion Nation.
Bestselling author, trial attorney, and NBC News analyst Lisa Bloom covered the murder trial and was appalled by what she witnessed. Bloom now exposes the injustice, conducting new in-depth interviews with key trial participants and digging deeper into the evidence. Suspicion Nation outlines the six biggest mistakes made by the state of Florida that guaranteed it would lose this “winnable case,” and the laws and biases that created the conditions for this tragedy.

Read a transcript or Listen to an mp3 audio of Michael Slate interviewing Lisa Bloom on March 28, 2014 on the Los Angeles Pacifica affiliate KPFK. Lisa Bloom says: "I think that fifty years from now, people are going to look at this case as the Emmett Till case of the early 21st century."

There must be powerful demonstrations nationwide on October 22, the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation. Throughout October there must be panels and symposiums on campuses and in neighborhoods; major concerts and other cultural expressions; ferment in the faith communities, and more—all aimed at taking the movement to STOP mass incarceration to a much higher level.

"Mass Incarceration On Trial" - Jonathan Simon Presents His New Book


October 15, Wednesday, 7 pm Jonathan Simon discusses his new book 
Mass Incarceration on Trial: 
A Remarkable Court Decision and the Future of Prisons in America

For nearly forty years, the United States has been gripped by policies that have placed more than 2.5 million Americans in jails and prisons designed to hold a fraction of that number of inmates. Our prisons are not only vast and overcrowded, they are degrading—relying on racist gangs, lockdowns, and Supermax-style segregation units to maintain a tenuous order. 

“A masterful job of assessing the qualitative shift in the court’s analysis on human rights concerns as they apply to our notorious prison system, the book points the way to a legal strategy premised on human dignity as a means of challenging mass incarceration.”
— Marc Mauer, executive director, The Sentencing Project, and author of Race to Incarcerate
