Join us December 5th at 6:00 PM at UWM’s Golda Meir Library Conference Center, for the community panel discussion, “Rethinking Justice and Incarceration in Wisconsin: The Impact of Incarceration on Communities: A Systems Perspective”
Milwaukee Turners’ program Confronting Mass Incarceration (CMI), in collaboration with ACLU-WI, Wisconsin Justice Initiative (WJI), Marquette University, UWM, MSOE and MATC, have worked together at organizing this groundbreaking series aimed at moving the community conversation forward on confronting the broken criminal justice system in Wisconsin. As of 2018, the state has more than 23,000 incarcerated individuals, a record high. CMI and its partners seek to confront the systemic and cyclical issue of mass incarceration for the epidemic that it is in this important five-part series.
This is the third part of the series, which will run through January, encouraging continued discussion along the way.
Each part of the series will be hosted by each of the city’s major higher-ed institutions, with the intentional goal of partnering with academia to help in the complex problem-solving of mass incarceration. The panel on December 5th, entitled “The Impact of Incarceration on Communities: A Systems Perspective”, will be moderated by UWM Professor and CMI member Tim Ehlinger and will include a presentation by Utah Valley University’s Map-The-System incarceration team. The event will also include the following panelists:
Theresa and Tim Scott (Safe & Sound) Sebastian Ssempijja, PhD. (Sebastian Family Psychology)
Jamaal Smith (Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention)
Sharlen Moore (Youth Justice Milwaukee)
