Reimagining Justice in the Age of Mass Incarceration
A conference sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and Prism Restorative Justice
Mass incarceration ranks high among the injustices of our day, splitting families and communities, perpetuating racism, and failing to deliver the very thing it promises: justice. What does true justice look like in our current context? This conference will study that question from a multifaceted perspective, looking at diverse approaches to justice, including:
• legislative solutions, both to help reduce the number of people behind bars and to improve conditions for those returning to freedom after incarceration
• models for providing compassionate care for those who are incarcerated
• re-entry programs to help formerly-incarcerated people rebuild their lives
• restorative justice programs that look beyond punishment for a fuller picture of justice
Prioritizing the voices of formerly incarcerated people, those working on the front lines, and those whose ideas challenge our preconceptions of what criminal justice looks like, this conference will bring new perspectives for those who have long been working against mass incarceration and for those new to the struggle.
