ABOUT THE CONVERSATION

Among the many communities affected by America's new political reality, women who are incarcerated are at heightened risk. As a law-and-order narrative again sweeps across the nation, what will be different for leaders who remain opposed to mass incarceration? For the families and communities of women who are incarcerated? What will change for the women themselves - and for each of us - in the fight for their civil rights and human dignity?

Please join us for a conversation on the issues with five powerful thinkers, followed by an audience Q&A. The afternoon will begin with a performance by writer/performer Liza Jessie Peterson.

This talk is part of the series "States of Denial: The Illegal Incarceration of Women, Children, and People of Color," presented by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art
