We should all be ashamed of the state of incarceration in America, but since shame doesn't really help the millions of men, women and children impacted by this embarrassment, what does? Or what might? This discussion features educators, activists and artists who are trying to address the gross injustice of the so-called justice system that disproportionately incarcerates and monitors along class and racial lines and then is slow to "forgive" anyone with a criminal record. Panelists will explain how they got involved, then give advice for approaching this work and an overview of the range of work that needs to be done.
