Civil Rights at 50:  To Create Peace, Try Justice

Keynote speakers: Theodora Lacey, noted civil rights pioneer and leader, and her son, Clinton Lacey, a pioneer in the criminal justice system.

Theodora Lacey began her life as a civil rights activist working closely with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., during the 1955 bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama.    After moving to Teaneck, Theodora played a major role in integrating the public school system.  She was chosen by Bergen County SANE/Freeze (later Peace Action) as a delegate to the Soviet Union in the Bridges to Peace citizen exchange.  Ms. Lacey has received numerous awards for her outstanding teaching, her leadership in civil rights, service, and community work.

Clinton Lacey is Deputy Commissioner, Adult Operations, NYC Department of Probation, with 25 years of experience working with youth and families.  He was Associate Executive Director of Friends of Island Academy, working with 16 to 24 year olds involved in the criminal justice system.  Clinton served as Director of the Youth Justice Project at Vera Institute of Justice, overseeing a technical assistance project focused on the reform of NYS juvenile justice policies.  He has worked with the W. Haywood Burns Institute as a project manager addressing the training of those working with youth and families in the system.  Clinton now supervises 27,000 clients on probation and is leading initiatives to reform the Probation Departments policies and practices.

Loose Nukes — a novel by Bill Griffeth

A Novel

About the Book

Published on the twelfth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks, Loose Nukes explores an even more frightening possibility: nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists. From Kyrgyzstan to Kashmir to Britain, from Washington to New York to Chicago to Alaska, we follow the Mushrooms (anarchists with The Bomb) and the man who would stop them, nuclear nonproliferation expert Coot Jenkins. The physical devastation and human suffering that even a small nuclear weapon can cause become horribly apparent as the Mushrooms begin their attacks.
