Join us for a Community Forum on Post-Release Justice
Every day, thousands of Black and Brown people are convicted, locked up in cages and suffering the collateral consequences of having a record because of a corrupt criminal legal system.
One in four people in the U.S. struggles with the residual effects of a conviction. Many who were coerced to take a bad plea deal in the first place, are now suffering from restricted access to jobs, proper childcare, and no hope of upward mobility. But we are demanding change. In partnership with Life After Release, we are hosting a community forum to discuss the post-conviction process as a pathway to freedom.
Please join us for a day of delicious food, community, and discussion.
