About this event

A gathering of people who are interested in and who have knowledge of and experience with issues of incarceration and reintegration. We will listen to talks by 2 residents of Marion Correctional and 2 outside speakers with perspectives on "criminal justice" and its effects. A dancer and a poet bring a moment to pause and think. "Speed-TEDxing" will give us a chance to discuss in small groups and Open Spaces will allow for informal conversation.
