Did you know many Coloradans have the right to vote, even with a criminal record? The U.S. incarcerates a higher percentage of it’s population than any other nation, but does it give us a reduced crime rate? Thirty years ago, Colorado doubled it’s felony sentence durations, causing prison populations to grow rapidly, forcing the state to spend more on prisons. The League of Women Voters and People Power of the Western Slope present a talk by Juston Cooper of the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition in Denver on their grassroots effort to address community poverty, over-policing and over-incarceration. Free Pablo’s Pizza will be provided at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation will be at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, April 2, 2018 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 536 Ouray Ave., downtown Grand Junction.
