On April 18th from 7:00 pm- 8:30 pm at BRIC Studios in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, I will be hosting a live town hall event called, Decarcerated: What Justice Looks Like. I will be in conversation with some AMAZING PEOPLE who will be speaking about their journeys of success. Rarely do we have the platforms to speak to our journeys of success despite prison and many of the carceral spaces we navigate.  This is a great way to spend your evening on Tuesday, April 18th at 7:00 pm.
