Let's End Our History (and Our Present) of
Locking Up Our Neighbors
  • Paul Bocanegra, criminal justice reform advocate and San Mateo County Juvenile Justice Commissioner, discusses our country's and our county's pattern of dividing our community. He is a former "Juvenile Life Without Parole" who served over 25 years in prison.
  • Now free, Paul asks why our society allows our governments to divide us, from San Mateo County's key role in Japanese-American internment, to caging children at the U.S.-Mexican border, to destroying families through a racially-biased criminal justice system.
  • During these challenging times, come together with your neighbors and hear about how ACLU volunteers are making a difference.
San Mateo Public Library facilities are being rented for this event. The viewpoints and materials presented at this event are not necessarily endorsed by the City of San Mateo or the San Mateo Public Library.
