Creative Time and the Fortune Society presented Bring Down the Walls featuring the Center for Justice

4 CATHARTIC WEEKENDS OF RADICALNESS

 

Every Saturday for the month of May, in an old firehouse in Manhattan, an event was being held to bring people together who shared the same urgency for ending mass incarceration and overall injustice in this country.  Panel discussions were held in the afternoons by different organizations and people who either play a vital role in creating change or have serious concerns about the state of our judicial system. Our Justice in Education Scholars, Jay Holder helped organize and present panel discussions that featured The Center for Justice at Columbia University. Prof. Geraldine Downey, Pastor Isaac Scott, Jarell Daniels, Robert Wright, and Dr. Claudia Rincon all contributed to discussions that centered around prison reform and the enormous effect higher education has on the lives of those incarcerated.
