‘Hear Me Out’ Series: How Is Mass Incarceration Impacting My Community?
In partnership with the Northland Public Library, the Coy Public Library of Shippensburg, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and the Cleve J. Fredricksen Library, the Free Library of Philadelphia presents How is Mass Incarceration Impacting My Community?
Join us for an authentic and informative discussion on mass incarceration and its impacts on our community! This 90-minute virtual dialogue will center the lived experiences of formerly incarcerated individuals along with related issues of race, poverty, and punishment. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with fellow Pennsylvanians through facilitated small group discussions around personal lived experiences, how the carceral structure impacts our value systems, as well as alternatives to our current system.
