Justice Delayed: Wrongful Incarceration from Mandela to Today
April 22 @ 6:30 PM
As it was when Nelson Mandela was imprisoned nearly 60 years ago, the who, what, where, when, and why of incarceration remains a challenging topic. We invite you to a powerful dialogue about ending injustice in our prison and legal systems with Floyd Stafford, Sr. Project Manager National Initiatives – Research & Policy at Heartland Alliance and Co-founder of The Alumni Association, a peer support network for the formerly incarcerated. La Tanya Jenifor-Sublett, Community Activist who was wrongfully convicted & incarcerated, and Dr. Lisa Lee, Executive Director, National Public Housing Museum and Teacher at Statesville Prison will join Mr. Stafford.
