Criminal (IN)Justice System: Understanding (and Dismantling) the School-to-Prison Pipeline and Mass Incarceration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Did you know that the US incarcerates more people per capita than any other country? Or that they determine how many prisons to build based on 3rd/4th grade reading scores? We will explore the injustices of the criminal justice system, how schools contribute to overcrowded prisons, and how the US is getting rich off of prison labor. Learn practical and powerful ways to impact and dismantle the system (even if you never meet a prisoner).
