ABOUT THE EVENT | Join us for the Inaugural Kathy Boudin Lecture with the incredible Angela Y. Davis. Kathy Boudin was unwavering in her passion and fierce commitment to ending mass incarceration, to investing in the power of those who have been locked away, and to building communities of care and support. Kathy, who co-founded the Center for Justice and the Release Aging People in Prison campaign, among many other projects and organizations, left us on May 1st, 2022. In one of the many efforts to honor and celebrate Kathy, we have started the annual Kathy Boudin Lecture, to carry forward her legacy of care, justice and community. We are honored to be joined by Dr. Angela Y. Davis who among many things, was a long time friend of Kathy's.

We are also incredibly grateful to partner with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, to host the inaugural lecture.
