Human Rights in Practice: "Building a Prison-to-School Pipeline"
Talk of the School-to-Prison pipeline has become increasingly common, but what's being done to reverse that flow? Join the Pozen Center and the Human Rights Lab in welcoming Michelle Jones alongside a panel of local scholars and community leaders for this lunchtime event. The panel will discuss systems of support for formerly incarcerated scholars in higher education and consider strategies for building Prison-to-School pipelines in Chicago. Cosponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture, the Center for Identity + Inclusion, and the Mass Incarceration Working Group. This event is backed by the Office of the Provost.
