TEDxSingSing is a one-of-a-kind speaking event, as it is primarily organized by a team of six currently incarcerated men inside Sing Sing Correctional Facility. In addition, more than half of the featured speakers have been chosen from the population of men living at Sing Sing. This event was created by men directly impacted by the criminal justice system with the intent to highlight the voices, stories, and insight of those who are too often overlooked. The theme of this event is “Re-Defining What Matters,” because we feel it lends itself to innovative talks from people of all different backgrounds.
