Event description: 

Join us for a discussion on mass incarceration in light of Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous 1963 publication. We’ll explore the following questions: How do we fight for freedom and justice with a system that promotes mass incarceration? How can we influence the future as people concerned with the welfare of our brothers and sisters impacted by this country’s criminal justice system?
We are pleased to have some amazing panel speakers: Zelda Roland founding director of the Yale Prison Education Initiative; Stevenson Lockley a Senior clinician with Living Free; Willis McCraw, a Prison Chaplain at Manson Youth Institution; and Asti Jackson, a political campaigner with CONECT and co-chair of their Clean Slate Campaign.
