Alice Green is a champion of the marginalized and powerless in New York’s Capital Region. Since the 1960s, she has been a leading local activist and organizer addressing a variety of social issues, including racial justice, prison reform, voter equality, and community policing.
The founder and executive director of Albany’s Center for Law and Justice, Dr. Green holds multiple degrees from UAlbany, including a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice. Her new memoir is We Who Believe in Freedom: Activism and the Struggle for Social Justice.
She will discuss her remarkable life in a conversation with Writers Institute Director Paul Grondahl, author of the book’s foreword and a journalist who has covered her singular career for more than three decades.
