The week will include lectures and discussions with individuals who have either personally experienced injustice in the US criminal justice system or have dedicated their careers to alleviating these injustices. The goal for the week is to raise awareness about injustice in the US criminal justice system and to encourage individuals to take action for criminal justice reform.
