Please join Prevention Institute on Tuesday, September 18th from 4:30 pm-6:30 pm for a book reading with Connie Rice, one of America’s most influential civil rights attorneys. Connie Rice will discuss and sign her new book, “Power Concedes Nothing: One Woman's Quest for Social Justice in America, from the Kill Zones to the Courtroom,” a hard-hitting memoir chronicling a fiercely dedicated woman’s quest to win the first of all human rights: freedom from violence. Provocative and passionate, studded with dramatic episodes from the trenches of impact litigation and America’s most dangerous neighborhoods, "Power Concedes Nothing" is the story of an indomitable woman who knows that, without a demand, power concedes nothing. Please RSVP by September 14th.

We hope you can join us for this powerful and compelling event.

“Connie Rice is the most brilliant legal mind I’ve encountered in my twenty-year broadcast history. I hang on her every word. She concedes nothing without a demand--never has and never will.” --Tavis Smiley

"A compelling story of a life dedicated to creating positive and lasting change in two of the most significant issues facing our society, civil rights and gang violence. There is nobody in America today who has brought so much positive change to these two issues than Connie.... Anyone who cares about democracy and its true potential needs to read this book." --William J. Bratton, Former Chief-LAPD, Former Commissioner-NYPD

Connie Rice led the development of A Call to Action: The Case for Comprehensive Solutions to L.A.’s Gang Epidemic. It reflects the critical need to incorporate a public health approach into violence prevention efforts, and explores how city and county governments can provide structural and systematic support for preventing violence, specifically gang reduction.

Prevention Institute’s Urban Networks to Increase Thriving Youth (UNITY) builds support for effective, sustainable efforts to prevent violence before it occurs, so that urban youth can thrive in safe environments with supportive relationships and opportunities for success. Learn more about UNITY.
