Mass Incarceration: Seen and Unseen
Campus Center, Weis Cinema
5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Come listen to those who have been impacted by the criminal justice system firsthand and are involved in anti-mass incarceration work.
The Bard New Orleans Exchange and the Jewish Students Organization will be hosting a panel comprised of several people with varying degrees of involvement in the criminal justice reform field. These people include: Quintin Cross (founder of SBK Social Justice Center), Callie Jayne (focused on Racial Justice and Restorative Justice in Kingston), Catherine Brebnor (Bard Prison Initiative graduate), and Evie Litwok (prison reform advocate, focuses on LGBTQ rights). It will be moderated by sociology professor, Allison McKim. 

This panel will serve as a platform to discuss the emotional and logistical components of at least a part of the criminal justice system today and the multifaceted work being done to end mass incarceration. It will be on Wednesday, May 9th, 5pm in Weis Cinema in the Campus Center.
