Decarceration and Community: COVID-19 and Beyond (Part I)
Part I of this discussion series, cosponsored with the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, focuses on people who are incarcerated and their families, exploring how systemic racism and mass criminalization threaten both incarcerated individuals and their communities. The participants will consider how recent events, including the COVID-19 crisis and the police murder of George Floyd, highlight and magnify historical inequities—with deadly results.
The panelists work directly with people affected by incarceration, including several who focus on the all-too-often neglected plight of incarcerated women and their families.
