FELLOWSHIP PLACE PRESENTS A VIRTUAL CONVERSATION WITH EMILY BAZELON
In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, Fellowship Place is hosting a virtual conversation on the need for criminal justice reform and how people of color and people living with mental illness have been failed by the courts and the prison system. African Americans are incarcerated in state prisons across the country at more than five times the rate of whites. More than one-third of inmates in state and federal prisons suffer from a mental illness. Emily Bazelon will lead a conversation about the disparities in the criminal justice system and the reforms that are urgently needed; she will be joined by a panel of formerly incarcerated individuals served by Fellowship Place.

May 13, 2021 06:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
