Let’s Not Re-envision Prison Let’s Abolish It

Presented by Evie Litwok, Director, Witness to Mass Incarceration, Thursday, July 7th at 6:00 PM

In 1996, Hillary Clinton wrote the book, It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us. In 2008, during her Presidential run, she said, “it takes an inclusive society to build an inclusive economy.” Clinton’s message, “it takes a village” resonates with the current state of incarceration–it will take a nation and all of its people to rid us of the unjust and inhumane incarceration system of today. This talk will engage with ideas of not only re-envisioning incarceration, but abolishing it altogether.
