Did you know that the United States, often considered “the land of the free”, currently holds the dubious distinction of being the world’s largest prison warden (Walmsley 2011)?
The enmeshed consequences of incarceration and prisons are omnipresent throughout the social work profession (James & Smyth 2014). Yet it is startling that critical discourse in schools of social work pertaining to mass incarceration and criminal justice is marginal (Less than 5 percent of schools offer courses), or in some cases completely absent (Epperson et al, 2011; James & Smyth, 2014).
Join us to Re-Imagine Justice --- A two day conference which will present social workers with a historical and contemporary understanding of mass incarceration, reentry, and the intersection of trauma. It will further provide tools to facilitate holistic social work practice and advocacy with individuals, families, and communities impacted by this destructive phenomenon. Special attention will also be given to invisible populations, such as LGBTQ, immigrants and women of color.
It is our intent to stand with as allies, and when needed, lift the voices of the oppressed to demand that WE, Re-Imagine Justice in America for ALL.
