Civic Dialogue on Mass Incarceration

Wednesday, June 30, 5:30pm

Join us for an authentic and informative discussion on mass incarceration and its impacts on PA communities! This 90-minute virtual dialogue will center the lived experiences of formerly incarcerated individuals along with related issues of race, poverty, and punishment. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with fellow Pennsylvanians through facilitated small group discussions around personal lived experiences, how the carceral structure impacts our value systems, as well as alternatives to our current system.
