Prison Nation: Mass Incarceration in the United States March 13

Posted by Tim on February 18, 2019 in Academic Presentations, Academics, Community Announcements, Event, Networking, Workshops

A discussion of the human and financial costs associated with the U.S.’s reliance on mass incarceration

Featuring Distinguished Speaker David Fathi, Director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s National Prison Project

March 13, 2019
509 O’Brian Hall
4:30 p.m. FREE and open to all. Reception to follow.

The American Civil Liberties Union’s National Prison Project brings challenges to conditions of confinement in prisons, jails and other detention facilities. The Prison Project also works to end the policies that have given the U.S. the highest incarceration rate in the world. Fathi has a special expertise in challenging “supermax” prisons, where prisoners are held for months or years at a time in conditions of near-total isolation. Fathi also represented the ACLU during negotiations in the U.N., which lead to the adoption of the Nelson Mandela Rules.
