The Criminal Justice Caucus and the Justice Initiative at Columbia University will be hosting the Beyond the Bars: Breaking Through Conference from March 7-8 next month. Click here for the EventBrite invitation.
Beyond The Bars: Breaking Through is the fourth annual student- driven interdisciplinary conference on mass incarceration held at Columbia University. Given the greater consciousness in society of the state of Mass Incarceration in the United States, this conference seeks to enable people to further the discussions around a variety of issues, and take action based on new knowledge. The conference launches Friday night with well-renowned guest speakers such as Angela Davis, Fania Davis, Beth Richie, and other leading voices; and performances by Byronn Bain and Impact Repertory Theatre. It continues into Saturday, with informative, thought-challenging, action-based panels and workshops headed by community members, professionals, professors, and students in a variety of fields concerned with mass incarceration.
We’ve got our ticket. Maybe we’ll see you there!
