State of Incarceration Summit

October 28, 2020 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

The ASU Center for Child Well-Being in collaboration with the Academy for Justice, the School of Social Transformation, the Center for Justice and Social Inquiry, and the Center for Imagination of the Borderlands, are hosting a virtual State of Incarceration Summit on Wednesdays throughout October focusing on: the carceral state as a system, education, supportive programs and policies as well as advocacy.  We have three very exciting keynotes:  Sylvia A. Harvey, author of The Shadow System: Mass Incarceration and the American Family,  Chesa Boudin, District Attorney of San Francisco, and just announced today, Noel Candel├íria, Secretary/Treasurer for the National Education Association. 

Each year it becomes more apparent that we need to examine incarceration in totality with focus on not just the impact of incarceration, but provide space across disciplines to hold conversations on the carceral state as a whole from disproportionality, systems, race, and economics.
