Criminalization of Communities of Color: Race & Incarceration

Saturday, Apr 18, 2015, 2:00 pm

According the Sentencing Project, 60% of the US prison population is disproportionately represented by black and brown people. How did we get here? What can be done to end this trend? How are communities of faith and formerly incarcerated people working to make change? This workshop will identify the policies and practices that drive these statistics and consider actions that can produce racially equitable outcomes within the justice system.
