Think & Drink '17 SM

Join us for a third season of Think & Drink in Bangor as we tackle policing in Maine, its intersection with race, and how our local experience connects with what we see across the rest of the United States.

How does society define criminal behavior, and who is a criminal? What powers do we place in the hands of the state (police, legal system, prisons), and how do we monitor the use of those powers? Do communities suffer collateral damage from being policed, and do those who do the policing face emotional challenges of their own?

Darren RancoOur MC Darren Ranco returns for a second year. Darren is Department Chair of the University of Maine Native American Studies Department.
